The Summer Research and Internships Fellows and the Hipp Fellowship programs are designed to give students interesting and challenging educational opportunities beyond the classroom. The Hipp Program is designed in particular for students with high GPAs or who participate in international experiences. The same application is used for both programs with funds allocated as appropriate.

Summer Internship Fellows
Summer Internship Fellows provide competitive fellowships to students who obtain full-time (minimum of eight weeks) summer internships that have an academic component directly related to their major or career goals. Through this program, students apply and compete for stipends to help offset expenses or supplement their salary. Applications are reviewed by a committee. The program supports students in all majors in summer internships throughout the nation and the world, with priority given to rising seniors and rising juniors. More information is available on the application. Please contact Andy Coe at or 864-294-3110 for any questions about the Internship Fellowship.

Teaching Fellows
Teaching Fellows collaborate five hours a week during the academic year (or 20 hours a week during the summer) as junior colleagues to faculty members, assisting them with some aspect of teaching or course development. For example, they might help a faculty member develop a laboratory for a course, lead discussion sections, develop visual aids for a course, and/or help the professor give individual attention and tutoring in a course. Selected students are typically juniors and seniors who have at least a 3.0 grade point average in their major. The application deadline is generally mid-April for the following academic year.  Please contact Andy Coe at or 864-294-3110 for any questions about the Teaching Fellowship.
