C3 Undergraduate Fellowships

C3 Undergraduate Fellowships provided rising juniors, rising seniors, and recent graduates from LADO colleges with paid and mentored graduate-level, research experience, plus training about applying to and succeeding in graduate school. Undergraduate fellows experienced a new academic and social environment in dynamic and diverse regions of the country by spending anywhere from two to nine weeks working with faculty mentors, graduate student mentors, and fellow undergraduate summer researchers at Columbia University; University of California, Berkeley; the University of Chicago; or the University of Michigan.

Depending on the fellow-mentorship match available, undergraduate fellows were expected to assist their faculty mentor on an existing research project, develop their own research project under the guidance of their faculty and graduate student mentors, or both. At the end of the summer program, undergraduate fellows often presented their findings to faculty, graduate students, and the campus community at a research symposium.

In addition to research, C3 undergraduate fellows extended their social and professional networks with faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students from other schools. They participated in weekly seminars, workshops, and group events; received insider knowledge and preparation for the graduate school application process; and, in most cases, took a GRE preparation class.

The C3 Undergraduate Fellowship were open to rising juniors, rising seniors, and recent graduates from LADO colleges studying the arts, humanities, and humanistic social sciences.

Financial benefits included:

  • A generous stipend
  • Campus housing
  • Transportation allowance
