Dean's Summer Fellowship

About the Dean’s Summer Fellows

The Dean’s Summer Fellowship Program provides an opportunity for University of Dayton College of Arts and Sciences undergraduate students to conduct summer research in any academic discipline under the guidance of a faculty mentor. Faculty mentors present students for consideration of this cash award and those students accepting the fellowship receive $1500 (full summer) or $750 (half summer), deposited into their student account for expenses related to their research. Mentors submit fellowship applications for their students by March 1 of each year. Funds for this fellowship are provided by the College of Arts and Sciences’ Dean’s Fund for Excellence.
