The Westminster College Drinko Center for Undergraduate Research invites Westminster student and faculty pairs from all academic disciplines to apply for one of four competitive Drinko Summer Research Fellowships. Any pairs wishing to engage in scholarly research or creative projects during the summer of 2017 are encourage to submit their applications by April 7, 2017 at 5 p.m.

The fellowship includes stipends for both the undergraduate researcher and faculty mentor. Partial support for on-campus housing will be provided to recipients to help with residential costs during their four-week research period.

Dr. Karen Resendes, Associate Professor of Biology, and Dr. Pam Richardson, Associate Professor of Mathematics, are co-directors of the Drinko Center. Resendes and Richardson are excited about launching the first round of summer fellowships and are optimistic about future years.

 “This is our first attempt at a summer research program and we are really excited about the opportunity for our students and the possibility of expanding this program in future years,” says Resendes.

Student and Faculty teams who wish to apply should complete the application found online. The student must be currently enrolled as a degree-seeking student and in good academic standing at the time of the fellowship application. Students graduating in May 2017 are NOT eligible for this program.

More details about eligibility and conditions can be found online and on the application form.

The 2017 Fellows will be announced at Honors Convocation on April 26, 2017.
