Students interested in conducting academic research or creative projects on a self-selected topic may qualify for funding from the university.
Student-initiated fellowships envision research or creative projects supervised by faculty members, but proposed by students.
A student wishing to pursue a self-inspired project should identify and consult with a Colgate faculty member to receive guidance and a commitment from the faculty member to serve as a formal adviser throughout the project. The project does not need to be related to the faculty member's own research or specific area of scholarly or artistic interest.
The student and faculty member will then collaborate on an application for funding, found below.
