Conducting research during the summer can be a transformative experience for undergraduate students as you put your skills to the test.
The Office of Undergraduate Research annually awards a vast number of undergraduates the opportunity to try something new or take their experience to the next level during the summer term. This fellowship provides undergraduates with the opportunity to study in a wide variety of disciplines while doing intensive and self-directed research or creative work under the supervision of a faculty mentor.
Sustainability Summer Research Fellowships ($5,000 stipend) are funded by the Environmental Stewardship Fee and seek to promote projects that will make a significant contribution to the student’s academic growth, while concomitantly contributing to sustainability-focused research initiatives at the University of Kentucky and within the community at large. Where appropriate, we are also seeking projects that will make a scholarly contribution to their discipline.
Sustainability here is defined as the intersection of social, economic, and environmental justice. Sponsored by the Student Sustainability Council and UK Sustainability.
Award Amount: $5,000 (funded by the Environmental Stewardship Fee)
