Hill Undergrad Research Fellowships

Thanks to the generosity of Dr. Brian and Gayle Hill of Portland, Oregon, the University of Idaho College of Science is able to offer several fellowships each year.

The fellowships support undergraduate research for students working with faculty in the college. Each award has a scholarship component and a research grant component. Research projects will be conducted over a three-semester period.

Fellowship Awards

Four fellowships are available. Each fellowship will include a research grant of approximately $1,500 and a $950 scholarship award. Fellowship recipients will have the Spring semester and the following academic year to complete their projects. Shorter time frames are possible upon approval.

Eligibility

Full-time undergraduate students with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher are eligible to submit a grant proposal. Applicants must be performing or planning to perform research with a College of Science faculty member. See application for more details about eligibility.
