C3 Undergraduate Fellowships provide rising juniors and seniors with paid and mentored graduate-level research experience, plus training about applying to and succeeding in graduate school. Undergraduate fellows experience a new academic and social environment in dynamic and diverse regions of the country by spending eight to nine weeks working with faculty mentors, graduate student mentors, and fellow undergraduate summer researchers at Columbia University; University of California, Berkeley; the University of Chicago; and the University of Michigan.

For information about eligible fields of study, how to apply, and program information, see go/c3 and look for the C3 Undergraduate Fellowship under C3 Programs. Application deadlines range from Jan 15 to February 1.

Applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents, rising juniors or seniors as of the summer 2019. Strong applicants have a clear interest in conducting research in the arts, humanities, or humanistic social sciences and are potentially interested in graduate study in the future. Applicants from groups historically underrepresented in the academy are encouraged to apply; this includes those who are historically underrepresented (such as African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians or other Pacific Islanders), first generation college students, or have followed nontraditional pathways to college due to exceptional talent and motivation in the face of adversity, such as societal, economic, or academic disadvantages.

If you have questions or plan to apply, please contact Dean Lisa Gates at fellowships@middlebury.edu.
