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.

Departments: 

Can I apply to this fellowship if I have not secured an internship/research position by the deadline?

Scholars without secured internships may apply for the internship/research position but will not be considered until the position is official.  Please speak with a CUSP Advisor if this applies to you.

Departments: 

Does this cover summer school?

This fellowship does not cover traditional summer school (i.e. courses to meet CORE/major/graduation requirements); however, some summer programs will be considered if they contain a strong research, fieldwork, or experiential education component.  Please see a CUSP Advisor prior to submitting your application if your project falls in this category.

Departments: 

If I get an internship abroad, will my airfare be paid?

All grants are based on availability of funds. Please note that CUSP cannot guarantee that you will receive the full amount that you requested.

Departments: 

What is the average amount awarded?

The average amounts awarded vary.  All grants are considered based on availability of funds.  Please note that CUSP cannot guarantee the amount that you request.
