Research Year

Some VP&S students choose to take a year off from the core curriculum to pursue their research interests, usually, during the senior D&I phase of the curriculum. Several fellowships provide funding for selected students. Details regarding their mission, applicant eligibility, and deadlines are available on the respective websites. Departments are sometimes able to provide some funding for VP&S students who do not have funding through a fellowship. For details on funding your research year, please browse the Student Research Funding page. 

Please see below important financial aid documents and information needed when planning to take a year of research.  Please contact the Student Financial Aid and Planning Office with any questions:
