The Field Science Fellowship provides financial support to UC undergraduate-faculty teams conducting scientific research in the field at the UC Natural Reserve System. The fellowships enable students to focus on gaining valuable hands-on research experience under the guidance of a faculty researcher. We especially invite applications from students from ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in the sciences.
Each $6,000 award consists of a $5,000 student stipend and $1,000 to cover project costs. A maximum of $24,000 will be awarded annually. Funding for Field Science Fellowships is made possible by the Samuelsen Conservation Scholars Initiative honoring Roger Samuelsen, the first director of the UC Natural Reserve System.
Application deadline: January 20, 2021
