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. Fellowships provide a $5,000 stipend for up to 10 weeks of full-time research, plus up to $750 for conference expenses to present their research during the following academic year.
Applications are due on March 2, 2022.
