Apply for our Undergraduate Discovery Fellowships

We’re now accepting applications for our second cohort of Undergraduate Discovery Fellowships. Discovery Fellows work closely with the a mentor in the department to pursue their own questions and interests across any of our Special and Area Studies Collections.

Fellows will receive a $500 stipend to create a small project, creative work, or proposal for further research, and will learn how to conduct hands-on research with rare and archival materials.

No prior research background is needed, and students who are new to UF or would like to pursue topics outside their major are encouraged to apply.

Applications (a short statement of interest and a resume) are due Monday, 11/29/2021.

More information about the fellowship and what past students have done on it can be found at the project’s website: Storied Books at the University of Florida.

Please contact Neil Weijer, Curator of Rare Books, to apply or with any questions.
