About the Fellowships
The Peter J. Eloranta Fellowships are awarded to MIT undergraduates for interesting and novel research and ideas that students develop from their own interests that are outside the normal curriculum. In making awards, the selection committee looks for engaging proposals that are well-written, original, and workable.
Each individual fellowship is $7,000 and may be used to cover project expenses, materials and services costs, travel and/or living expenses, so that recipients can fully focus on their project for the summer.
- All MIT undergraduates (including seniors planning to graduate in June) are eligible to apply for these summer research fellowships.
- Fellowship Information Sessions will be held during IAP and spring semester - check back for the schedule. Attend one of these sessions to learn more about how to craft a winning proposal.
- Consult UROP staff about your project ideas and potential proposals prior to formal submission. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by 7-104, if you have questions about applying or would like to discuss your project.
