Fellowship information

SoReMo Fellows are key active participants in the Forum: a place for presenting issues, challenges, solutions, roadblocks, innovative ideas, that come out of Fellows' projects to a broad, multidisciplinary audience of students, faculty, and external advisors. They will peer review other Fellows' work. They will incorporate feedback from community stakeholders and subject matter experts from industry, academia, and government. During the process, Fellows will gain communications training, interdisciplinary experience, and contacts across campus and the community.

Fellows get financial support to work on the project for one semester. Individual fellowships amounts start at $2,000, but are typically $3,000, and could also combined with other sources, such as Federal Work Study support. Team fellowships (new!) start at $1,500 per team member and can be up to $3,000 per team member.

Students interested in joining the SoReMo initiative as Fellows (with a paid fellowship) should complete an application form which will be made available here.
