Honors College Fellowships: Welcome

Honors College Fellowships

An Honors College Student Fellowship is a $1,200 grant given to a Commonwealth Honors student for pre-approved scholarly engagement that is overseen and guided by a mentor. Each fellowship must have a reading component, a writing component, and a speaking component. The student is expected to invest about 100 hours of focused effort. A single fellowship can be spread across twelve consecutive months (no longer unless approved). 

We hope to award  60 fellowships in the following five categories follows:

Research Creativity Reading Community Engagement

Money is credited to a student’s tuition and fee bill. Typically, half of the award ($600) is given at the start of the fellowship while the second $600 is released when the student satisfactorily completes the activity and submits the fellowship final report. (see below). 

The Honors College Fellowships are awarded on a rolling basis 

To apply, select one of the links below, fill out the associated application, and submit it electronically to Julian_Zabalbeascoa@uml.edu
