Bagwell Fellowship for Undergraduate Research 

Overview

Bagwell Undergraduate Research Mentor Fellowships 

Fellowship Goal: create research positions for undergraduate students with no prior research experience

Eligibility: graduate students at Georgia Tech who are willing to mentor an undergraduate student with no prior research experience from the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry

Stipend: $5,000, as part of the regular graduate stipend for one semester. (The rest of the stipend must be supported by the graduate student’s advisor).  

The application for this fellowship consists of two rounds: 

Round 1 – Graduate students apply to be a research mentor along with the support of their faculty advisor. Each graduate student applicant proposes a research project with an undergraduate mentee. The research proposal must be feasible for an undergraduate student with no prior research experience and includes a plan for initial training of the mentee. 

Round 2 – Undergraduate students with no prior research experience apply to the research projects. Eligible applicant’s resumes are pooled for each project and selected by the graduate student mentor. 

Bagwell Summer Undergraduate Research Scholarships 

Scholarship goal: provide financial support for undergraduate students to conduct research at Georgia Tech in summer 

Eligibility: undergraduate students from the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry that have no prior fulltime summer research experience. Students with no prior research experience are preferred. No requirement on US citizenship or legal permanent residency. 

Stipend: $5,000 for fulltime research while taking no other classes. $3,000 for part-time research while taking one 3-credit course at GT. 

All recipients of this Scholarship will be invited to participate in activities associated with our summer research program for students from other institutions (https://reu.chemistry.gatech.edu/) and are expected to present their work at the end of the 10 week period along with our REU students.
