The Interdisciplinary Research Team Fellowship program supports interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary projects that expand traditional notions of research through collaborative work. The program supports teams of 2-5 rising sophomores and juniors working on a semester or year-long project. Special consideration is given to projects that work toward a deliverable, or an alternative to a traditional research paper. Both faculty and students can submit a project proposal. Students selected to the program register for 1.5 credits and receive a $750 award each semester. Students are expected to work approximately 5-7 hours per week on their projects.
