Barrett Fellows @ CLAS Centers

Home / Barrett Fellows @ CLAS Centers

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and Barrett, The Honors College offer an exciting, new program -- Barrett Fellows @ CLAS Centers – for Barrett students to do research and community outreach with ASU faculty.  Barrett students who have completed their first year and wish to engage in research and community outreach through the activities of one of the CLAS research centers/institutes may apply for an unpaid, semester-long or year-long fellowship.  These experiences may transition into honors thesis or creative projects but that is not a requirement of the fellowship.  This program is designed for you to build experience in an area of interest to you.

As part of the fellowship, students will enroll in a one-credit honors CLAS/BHC course that explores the interconnections among various research and outreach projects and the potential of fellowship projects.  The course will meet several times during Fall semester on Friday at 3:05 pm.  Course details will be provided to you once you have been selected as a Fellow.

You may review the available projects below and select those to which you wish to apply.  On the application form you may list more than one Center and more than one project on which you wish to serve as a Fellow.  We will do our best to match you with your first choice but positions are limited.  Once your application is complete you will be contacted by a Center of your choice for an interview.  Fellowship positions begin Fall 2017 unless otherwise indicated.  Applications are due by March 30th for Fellowships beginning August 15th. Placements will be made on a rolling basis, so apply early.
