Fellowships

We support Columbia undergraduates and alumni in exploring and applying for internal, national, and international fellowships. We inform students, faculty, and staff about a full range of opportunities and help students determine which programs best meet their intellectual, professional, and personal goals.

Research

Research allows you to build relationships with faculty; explore areas of interest; prepare for a senior thesis; prepare for graduate school; gain new knowledge in a topic of interest; engage in exciting projects during the summer and/or academic year; gain tools that will serve you well as you transition out of college.

Exploring the Application Process with URF

Students are invited to take an in-depth look at the application process with Undergraduate Research and Fellowships. Through a series of information sessions and workshops, students will learn more about writing the personal statement, crafting a research proposal, tailoring a resume, and much more.

Welcome to Undergraduate Research and Fellowships! There are exciting research and fellowship opportunities available to students at every stage of the Columbia experience and beyond.

Though COVID-19 gives rise to unconventional methods, URF Advisors remain committed to supporting students throughout their fellowship and research journeys virtually until we return to campus. URF will continue to offer advising via appointment or virtual walk-in sessions.
