Hughes Family Summer Research Fellowship

In 2005 Jefferson E. and Karen T. Hughes, the parents of C. Andrew Hughes '05 and K. Alexandra Hughes '07, generously created an endowed fund to support students engaged in summer research in environmental studies.

First-years, sophomores, and juniors may apply. Current seniors are ineligible.

The Hughes Family Fellowship in Environmental Studies carries a $3,200 stipend. Summer fellows agree to commit eight weeks full-time toward the completion of their proposed projects and to refrain from employment during their period of appointment. The Hughes Family Fellowship is not offered during the academic year.

If requested and approved during the application process, summer fellows may also be reimbursed for up to $500 for justified research related expenses (e.g., laboratory/art supplies, analytical costs, and travel beyond the local area to conduct field work or to visit an archive).

Should a faculty mentor feel that a fellow is not making sufficient progress toward the research goals set forth in the fellow's proposal, the College reserves the right to discontinue funding.
