2021 UPDATE: The Harriman Institute Undergraduate Summer Research Fellowship for summer 2021 will provide up to $3,000 per student to support an individual independent research project connected to the study of Russia, Eurasia, or Eastern Europe. The research project may NOT include travel due to the Columbia University’s travel restrictions for undergraduates.
Columbia University’s Harriman Institute Undergraduate Fellowships provide research support to juniors and seniors with a serious interest in the post-Soviet and/or East-Central European regions who are undertaking senior theses or comparable research and writing projects.
Each fellowship will provides funding to offset field research in in these regions, with the expectation that the research will be conducted over the academic year winter or spring breaks. Fellows will also be invited to all Harriman Institute events during academic year and will be required to present their research results at a Harriman Institute seminar in April.
