De Novo Fellowship

The De Novo Fellowship aims to broaden representation of students in STEM by funding their work with faculty mentors on exciting research projects.

A collaboration between the College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Engineering, the De Novo program awards research fellowships to outstanding students from underrepresented groups. CAS De Novo Fellowships provide a $6,000 stipend for up to 10 weeks of full-time research, plus up to $1,000 for conference expenses to present their research during the following academic year.

Applications are due on February 22, 2023.
