Slatt Scholars Jeff Mwathi 01

The Vincent P. Slatt Fellowship for Undergraduate Research in Energy Systems and Processes provides multiple awards of up to $2,500 per student, per semester, and up to $8,500 per student for the summer research experience for undergraduates (REU). Slatt Fellowships support students at Notre Dame and from minority-serving academic institutions (summer REU) who are interested in gaining a deeper understanding of sustainable energy through research and discovery in collaboration with ND Energy faculty affiliates or faculty who are willing to become affiliated. 

The annual application process opens October 1-November 15 for spring- and fall-semester fellowships and February 1-28 for the summer REU and fall semester fellowships. Students are notified in December  and March, respectively. Funding is available at the start of the research period. Semester awards support student stipends and laboratory supplies as needed. Summer awards support student stipends, on-campus housing, meals, and travel as needed.  

Slatt scholars are also eligible to apply for a one-time travel award of up to $1,000 to present their Slatt research project at a national conference. Requests can be made during the award year or up to six months after the award year ends. To apply, please complete the travel application form
