Farrell Fellowship Application

Application process

Faculty research projects are announced in March. Students may apply for up to two faculty projects. Applications will be due in April though we recommend applying as soon as possible as faculty may, and often do, hire students before the application deadline. Only declared Political Science majors are eligible to apply.

Faculty will interview and select Fellows from among those students who have applied to work on their specific projects. 

Research projects lengths vary with some being summer only and some running from summer through the full next academic year. 

Periodically throughout the year, Farrell Fellows and their mentors give short presentations at luncheons attended by participating faculty, other Fellows, and the DUS.

The research conducted by Farrell Fellows is incorporated into the work of the faculty mentors (in articles, books, or other publications) and publicized on the Political Science website.

The 2017-2018 Farrell Fellowship application period has closed.  This program is only available to declared Political Science majors.
