- Undergraduate Research Fellowship
The Undergraduate Research Fellowship is a chance for students to get firsthand research experience working with faculty and graduate students on topics related to the CREST CAChE program. Accepted students are paid to work in CREST laboratories where they will gain valuable skills and experience. Students will work 10-20 hours per week, depending on projects and their schedule. Interested students are able to apply during both Fall and Spring semesters.
- Graduate Student Fellowships
Faculty select student fellows whose interests and background match overall program objectives. Support is available to graduate students across multiple departments, including Biology, Chemistry, Earth & Environment, Computer Sciences, Public Health, Engineering and Architecture. In addition, we have a graduate fellowship available to work with the STEM Transformation Institute on our education and training components.
