Columbia University’s Harriman Institute Undergraduate Fellowships provide research support to juniors and seniors with a serious interest in the post-Soviet and/or East-Central European regions who are undertaking senior theses or comparable research and writing projects.
Each fellowship will provide up to $2,500 to offset field research in in these regions, with the expectation that the research will be conducted over the 2013-2014 academic year winter or spring breaks. Fellows will also be invited to all Harriman Institute events during academic year and will be required to present their research results at a Harriman Institute seminar in April. Competition is open to juniors and first-semester seniors in Columbia College, the School of General Studies, and Barnard College.
The Harriman Institute may also offer grant support for research during the summer, and if so, this competition will be run during the spring semester.
