Slatt Undergraduate






The Vincent P. Slatt Fellowship for Undergraduate Research in Energy Systems and Processes provides multiple fellowships annually for undergraduate students at Notre Dame and other universities to conduct energy-related research with ND Energy faculty affiliates or faculty who are willing to become affiliated.

Fellowships are awarded each calendar-year. Awards for academic-year fellowships (spring/fall) are up to $5,000 per student and are used to support stipends, purchase research supplies, and pay for travel to a national conference so students can present their research. Awards for summer fellowships are $5,000 per student, plus a small travel allowance for visiting students, and are used to support stipends, housing, meals, and other living expenses while on campus.

At the end of the research experience, students submit a final report (template) summarizing their research project and personal experiences. Summer scholars also present their research projects during the annual Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium and attend professional development workshops and social events to enhance their summer research experience, prepare for the research symposium, and network with students in other programs. 

Applications are accepted in the fall of the previous award-year and again in the spring. The link to the online application is posted in late September. 

  • October 1 to November 15 - applications accepted for academic-year (spring/fall) and summer fellowships with notification in December.

  • February 1-28 - applications accepted for summer and fall fellowships with notification in March.
