Program Description:
Columbia College’s Class of 1939 Summer Research Fellowships were established by alumni in the Class of 1939 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of their graduation.  Fellowships provide funds for students to pursue independent research or to qualify as assistants in on-going laboratory projects over the summer at a location of their choosing.  Students are expected to carry out this research under the supervision of a faculty member from Columbia (preferably from the Faculty of Arts and Sciences) who will be required to sponsor the project and provide advice before, during, and after the period of the research.  The fellowship’s intent is to give students the opportunity to pursue their intellectual goals, gain valuable research experience, and cultivate stronger relationships with a faculty member.

Individual awards usually range from $500 to $5,000, depending on the budget required for each project.  Awards cannot be used for the completion of formal coursework or structured internships. 

Eligibility is limited to current sophomores and juniors in Columbia College. 

Class of 1939 Summer Research Fellows may be asked to speak at information sessions for interested prospective applicants.

 To apply: Complete your application online here (click "Start an Application" either at the top or bottom of this page) and have your letter of sponsorship/recommendation submitted directly to no later than the deadline shown.
