Wilkinson Undergraduate Research Fellows

Program Description:

Each summer, Wilkinson College provides faculty with the opportunity to hire and mentor a limited number of undergraduate research fellows to collaborate on research and creative activity projects. Hiring and student time sheets will be managed by the Wilkinson College Dean's Office. Faculty will be required to submit reports at the end of the project period.­­

Program Objectives:

  • Provide transformative research and creative activity experiences to undergraduate students
  • Increase student participation in hands-on research and creative activity and increase their confidence level in conducting and disseminating resulting information. Student dissemination of work is required.
  • Engage in faculty-mentored intensive research and creative activity in a range of disciplines­­


  • Full-time Wilkinson College faculty are eligible to apply for one undergraduate research fellow for up to 20 hours per week for the 13 week summer period of June 1 - August 30, 2021. Given the college’s limited funds, priority will be given to tenure-track junior faculty.
  • Wilkinson College Undergraduate Research Fellows must be undergraduate Wilkinson College majors in academic good standing. No prior research experience is required. Graduating seniors are eligible during summer that directly follows their degree conferral.
