The Vincent P. Slatt Fellowship for Undergraduate Research in Energy Systems and Processes provides an opportunity for undergraduate students at the University of Notre Dame and from the Atlanta University Center Consortium to conduct energy-related research with an ND Energy affiliated faculty member or faculty who are willing to become affiliated.
Approximately 13 awards of up to $5,000 per student are made each year. Awards are used to support student stipends, supplies, travel for students to present their research at national conferences and meetings, and if applicable, summer housing and meals.
Interested students will complete an online application in collaboration with their faculty advisor, who will also complete an online supporting application on behalf of the student. The role of the faculty advisor is to help the student articulate the goals of the research project and to guide and direct the students in pursuit of solving major energy issues through research and analytical study.
Applications will be accepted during October with notifications made in November and funding available in January for spring, summer, and fall research periods. By changing the schedule to a calendar year, hopefully more students will conduct research throughout the summer months, when they can be fully engaged in the research project and reap additional benefits.

Since 2006, Slatt Fellowships have been made possible through the generosity of Christopher (’80) and Jeanine Slatt in honor of Vincent P. Slatt, Notre Dame Class of 1943.
