Dean's Summer Fellowship

Program Details

Eligibility:

University of Dayton undergraduate students from any academic discipline within the College of Arts and Sciences are eligible to apply. The application process must be initiated by a full-time faculty mentor. Fellows must be available to conduct research for a minimum of 20 hours per week during one or both summer sessions.

Application:

The 2020 Dean’s Summer Fellowship (DSF) application is now closed.

  • The student award for 2020 was in the amount of $1500.00 (full summer) or $750.00 (half summer).
  • The process for 2020 required faculty mentors and students to complete a brief Google form to indicate the anticipated project deliverables, and to select from a short list the type of student experiential learning outcomes they intended for their student.
  • For the summer 2020 DSF program a stipend of $500.00 will be awarded to faculty mentors. This stipend will be added to a faculty member's payroll in the fall once their sponsored student has submitted their DSF final report. Mentors with multiple students are eligible for only one stipend.

Student Outcomes (deliverables):

  • A minimum of 20 hours per week devoted to research on proposed project or related educational endeavor.
  • A midsummer progress report and a final report are required for full-summer fellows. The final report only is required for half-summer fellows.

Other participation reminders:

  • Participating fellows may not enroll in more than one course (3 semester hours) in each summer session.
  • If a student has previously received a Dean's Summer Fellowship, they are eligible to receive a 2020 Fellowship.
  • By accepting the Dean's Summer Fellowship, students give permission to the University of Dayton to use their names, pictures and videos in College news and promotional materials without further consent.
