Yes. Please prepare a complete application packet listing the different internship/research positions .  Please submit only one set of recommendations.  For further information, please see a CUSP Advisor.

Who chooses the fellowship winners?

Departments: 

Do we have to research with a Columbia faculty member?

No.  While we encourage Scholars to seek and develop relationships with Columbia faculty, we support research endeavors with faculty from other universities as well.  If you have chosen a research advisor who is not a professor at an accredited institution, please see a CUSP Advisor before submitting your application.

Departments: 

Can I apply for this as a team project with other people?

yes you may apply for a joint project. However, each Scholar has to submit a separate application.  We always encourage Scholars to work collaboratively where applicable.

Departments: 

If I secure a low-paying internship, can I apply to supplement my expenses?

Yes.  Yes, you can apply. Please be sure to include all sources of funding that you have secured for this internship and please note that CUSP cannot guarantee that you will receive the amount that you request.
