The National Resource Center for The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition will award up to five fellowships to undergraduate students for the 2013 Annual Conference on The First-Year Experience, which will be held in Orlando Florida. The purpose of the Fellowship Program is to advance the leadership skills and knowledge base of undergraduate students so that they may in turn use what they learn at the conference to enhance and encourage first-year student development on their respective campuses. The fellowship covers the participant's conference registration fee, but no travel or lodging expenses.
Who Should Submit an Application?
The Annual Conference on The First-Year Experience Fellowship Program is open to all undergraduate students who are enrolled for the 2012-2013 academic year. Students who are interested in first-year programs, mentoring first-year students, and/or any other aspect of first-year student life and leadership are encouraged to apply.
Fellowships will be awarded to one applicant per institution. Previous winners of the fellowship are not eligible to apply. Applicants must be enrolled undergraduates during both the fall 2012 and spring 2013 semesters.
Deadline for Submitting Applications
The deadline for submitting an application is October 29, 2012. Fellowship awards for the Annual Conference will be announced in early December.
Fellowship Application Review Process
All applications will be reviewed by the staff of the National Resource Center for compliance with guidelines, and the staff will make the final fellowship award decisions. Fellowship awards for the 2013 Annual Conference will be announced in early December.
