The Honors Undergraduate Fellows Program at Ball State University is designed to identify, recruit, and retain outstanding undergraduate students and to provide them and their faculty mentors with enhanced opportunities for learning and participating in the scholarly enterprise.  The partnership of outstanding students and productive faculty scholars has mutual benefits:  the student moves into previously unexplored academic areas, and the faculty member has the unique opportunity to share the enjoyment of research and learning.

Fellowship appointments may span one or two semesters; the length is dependent on the nature of the proposed project.  Student fellows receive pay for 150 hours of work for each semester (currently $1,080 per semester).

Please review the Call for Proposals for full information.

To the extent that funding is available, there are four rounds of submission and review each year.  Submit your application prior to one of these deadlines:  September 30, October 31, February 28, and March 31.
