Fellowships for Distinguished Students

The "Stockton Board of Trustees Fellowships for Distinguished Students" program was established by the Board oflibrary Trustees in April of 1986. It supports student-initiated projects of undergraduate research and/or creative work in keeping with the educational philosophy and mission of Stockton University. Fellowship awards in amounts up to $1,000 each are provided semi-annually contingent upon available funds. While fellowships are intended to be utilized during time periods when the college is not in normal academic session (i.e., winter and summer semester breaks), projects that extend into the academic semester will be considered.                                                                   

Projects dedicated to social justice, civic engagement activities, and/or experiential learning opportunities or high impact practices will be given priority for funding.
