SCIENTIA'S CHARLES EDISON FOUNDATION STUDENT FELLOWSHIP
Scientia is excited to launch the inaugural Charles Edison Foundation Fellowship. The fellowship will provide two Notre Dame undergraduate students with $1,500 each for a full academic year. The goal of this fellowship is to help students that, due to because of financial circumstances, are unable to fully commit to undergraduate research because of on-campus or off-campus employment. Moreover, the hope is that the fellowship will promote undergraduate research at Notre Dame and help students reach their highest potential, regardless of economic circumstances.
Students interested should 1) answer the following questions in 500 words or less 2) one recommendation letter directly from a faculty member to email@example.com and 3) attach a resume and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11:59 p.m. April 12.
