Established in 2003 through an endowed fund from Frank Wilson Kibbe '37 and his wife, Lucy Kimberly Kibbe, to support faculty and research scientific research, Kibbe Fellowships are intended to support substantial participation in a scientific research project by a student under the direction of a faculty member who is independently interested in the area under study. Research projects should give the student firsthand experience with productive scholarly scientific research.
Students typically conduct eight, nine, or ten weeks of research. Selected fellows are expected to commit full-time effort to their research project, and faculty mentors must approve the duration of the fellowship period.
The Kibbe Fellowship carries an award of $425/week.
