The Fralin Undergraduate Research Fellowship program is a brand new, competitive award program that is open to all Virginia Tech undergraduates with a goal of increasing diversity in research. Fifteen fellowships of $1,000 each will be awarded annually to individual students demonstrating academic capability and a strong interest in undergraduate research, to enable them to conduct research with a Virginia Tech faculty mentor over the course of one academic year. This program is open to all students from any discipline who have already identified a faculty research mentor. Students from underrepresented groups (including, but not limited to, ethnic minorities, first generation college students, students from low income areas, students with disabilities, LGBTQ, etc.) are strongly encouraged to apply.
Priority Deadline: Aug. 14, 2016
First round of awards will be made Aug. 22, 2016.
