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.
