Recipients of the William W. and Ida W. Taylor Faculty-Mentored Research Fellowships receive $4,000 grants to work on a faculty-mentored research project during the summer. The fellowships provide opportunities for students to continue work they may already have begun with a faculty mentor, to get a head start on a Senior Honors Thesis, or to travel to distant libraries, labs, or archives that might otherwise be beyond reach. Applications are encouraged from all disciplines.
The Taylor Fellowship is one of several funding sources that supports UNC’s Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program. All applications and decisions are handled by the Office for Undergraduate Research.
