Summer Research Fellowship Application

Are you interested in becoming a Summer Research Fellow and immersing yourself in a research or creative project? If so, do the following…

  • Speak to a faculty member. Students apply for a Summer Research Fellowship in conjunction with a faculty mentor, and only after that mentor has submitted an application identifying the student.
  • Contact the Office of Undergraduate Research. If you want to know which faculty members are taking on students in Summer 2020, or how to approach them regarding a summer project, we are here to help.
  • Check here in the future. We will advertise any faculty who are looking for students to serve as a Summer Fellow.

2020 Applications for a Summer Research Fellowship funded by Furman’s Office of Undergraduate Research will open by December 1, 2020. Applications will be due by February 14, 2020.

Another option for summer research funding is a Research Fellowship from the South Carolina Independent Colleges and Universities (SCICU).

If you are applying to work with a non-Furman faculty, at another university or institute, you are what we call a “Research Intern.” You will apply for funding through the Internship Office, and the application deadline is March 31, 2020. Please see our section “Off-Campus Research Opportunities” for more information.
