Student Research at Another Institution (Kolenkow-Reitz Fellowship)

27 September 2022

Application DeadlineMonday, October 3, 2022,  5:00 PM

What: The Kolenkow-Reitz fellowship provides research support for Carleton students working with non-Carleton science and math faculty at another institution during the winter break.  These research opportunities are intended to encourage Carleton students’ development as scientists and their exploration of mathematics and the sciences as a possible career. Awards fund student stipends ($500/week for full time work) for up to 3 weeks during winter break. Additional expenses up to $150 can be requested to help defray travel or research supply expenses.  Note that students must work full time in order to qualify.  

Who:  Carleton students are eligible to apply for this funding. Before applying, students should have already contacted and discussed the nature and timing of their project with the person they are planning to work with as well as a faculty member at Carleton who can vouch for the project and its alignment with their professional development goals. Because the intent of the fellowship is exploration in STEM fields, priority is given to students who have completed coursework related to the proposed research, but who have not yet had a significant funded research experience (7 or more weeks). For Winter Break funding, we also consider students returning to a summer lab to finish up experiments and/or write up results for publication.

More details are available in the application form.
