Facilitating undergraduate research experiences is a priority at the University of Iowa and ICRU's Research Fellows Program has provided funding to 1,000+ students to engage in research and creative projects. The program allows current University of Iowa undergraduates - in every discipline - to work with UI faculty or P&S staff mentors on a specific project during the academic year and/or summer. 

Approximately 150 students are appointed each year as ICRU Research Fellows and are awarded a scholarship of either $2,000 during the academic year or $2,500 during the summer. 

Applications for the ICRU Fellows Program open in early February (due in March) each year for the following summer or academic year.

  • Please note that unfortunately, ICRU cannot offer Fellows funding at other times during the year.  Applications for funding are only available during the spring semester for the following summer or academic year.  Late applications cannot be accepted.
