Frequently Asked Questions
When is the deadline for applying for a fellowship?
Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis by mentors until the positions are filled. There is no deadline but earlier is always better, Once the fellowship is full we post a notice to the website that applications are no longer being accepted.
Are first-year students encouraged to apply? If so, are opportunities especially competitive for first-years?
First year students are welcome! Each application is reviewed by the project mentors on their own standards.
Can students only be chosen as a Fellow one time during their entire undergraduate experience?
Yes, in order to offer the program to as wide a group as possible, students may only be fellows once during their Vanderbilt career.
