Farrell Fellowship Application
We are no longer accepting applications for the 2018-2019 Farrell Fellowship. 2019-2020 applications will be opened in Winter Quarter 2019.
Faculty research projects are announced in March. Students may apply for up to two faculty projects. Applications are due in April (exact date announced annually) 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 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 Director of Undergraduate Studies.
- The research conducted by Farrell Fellows may be incorporated into the work of the faculty mentors (in articles, books, or other publications) and publicized on the Political Science website.
