How to Apply
All students and advisors connected to a Fellowship must REGISTER. When registering, please update any incorrect or missing information in your profile. In addition, you are required to submit a paper copy of your proposal and any supporting materials you may have (minus the letter of collaboration) to our office by the posted deadline.
Please note: All faculty advisors and students on group projects must be added by the student initiating the project registration. You MUST use their ANDREW ID to enter those individuals. ID exchanges will not enable you to apply (i.e. cmu.edu; cmu.cs.edu; cmu.sei.cmu; cmu.ece.edu, etc.) Use of the online application required WebISO authentication for each applicant.
Your application is your chance to tell us about your proposed research, why it's significant, and how well you are prepared to undertake such a project. All parts of your application must be submitted online. Once you have submitted online, your advisor will receive an email prompt to submit the letter of collabration.
Components of Application
Fellowship recipients must:
There are two types of proposals. Which of the two types - I or II - should I submit?
For students who are in the Arts and Creative Humanities, Type I proposals are most appropriate. If you are submitting a proposal in any of these areas, you should see the "Guidelines for Students Writing Art and Creative Humanities Grant Proposals" below.
All other students should submit Type II proposals and follow the standard guidelines below.
Both proposals follow the same Proposal Format in terms of length, font, and printing, and ALL students must submit a one-page biography. All students are encouraged strongly to work with their advisors and also to seek help from the Undergraduate Research Office in assembling these documents.
If you are uncertain about whether Proposal Type I or Type II is most appropriate for you, please contact Stephanie Wallach, Director of the URO, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Jennifer Keating-Miller, Assistant Director of the URO, at email@example.com, or call 8-5702.
You will post this information using the registration link, but you are also required to submit one full copy of your proposal (excluding the letter of collaboration) by the published deadline to our office at 531 Warner Hall.
For Fellowship Proposals, please disregard the section on Budget
Type I: Guidelines for Students Writing Art and Creative Humanities Grant Proposals

- Draft your proposal based on the guidelines in Writing Your Proposal.
- If you wish, meet with our Director or Assistant Director (this is strongly suggested.)
