How to Apply for HERC

The Higher Education Research Council (HERC) Fellowship is a paid, 10-week research experience offered to undergraduate students by the Institute for Inclusive & Transformative Scholarship. This fellowship gives students the opportunity to gain meaningful research skills with a faculty mentor. HERC Fellows receive a $3,000 stipend, and the opportunity to present their research. Recipients of the HERC Fellowship must have a faculty mentor nominate them for the fellowship.

Are you new to research? The HERC Fellowship is a great opportunity to get engaged.
