Undergraduate Global Research Fellows

The Halle Institute for Global Research will fund up to ten fellowships to support extensive research outside the United States for undergraduate students in any school (Arts & Sciences, Business, Nursing) doing honors theses or senior capstone projects.

Students who are accepted to or are applying for an honors program or capstone project are eligible. Global Fellows will receive up to $4,000 in research funds from the Halle Institute.  The international research portion of the fellowship will be conducted in Summer 2021 and is followed by mandatory registration in ECS 480, Global Fellows Research Seminar (two credits), and a concluding public forum organized by the Halle Institute in collaboration with the Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry (FCHI) where access to shared office space is available during the Fall 2021 semester. Halle Institute Global Fellows are expected to participate in Emory’s vibrant research community of faculty, graduate students, and visiting scholars.

Friday, February 26, 2021 is the deadline for the submission of applications. Please see our website for full details. There will be an information session via zoom scheduled in late January but interested applicants are encouraged to reach out before then with any questions.
