Every year, the Kellogg Institute for International Studies and the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, both at the University of Notre Dame, USA, announce a Research Grants Program for undergraduate students at Notre Dame during the summer.
The Kellogg/Kroc Undergraduate Research Grants are intended for juniors whose interests include a clear international dimension related to the Kellogg Institute's themes or the themes of the Kroc Institute.
Several grants of up to $5,000 each (in exceptional, justifiable cases, the Kellogg Institute may increase this amount) will be awarded for research abroad or, if demonstrably appropriate, in the United States. Applicants are required to notify the Kellogg Institute of any funding received from another source. If duplicate funding is received, the Institute may adjust the award.
Students must be in their junior year of studies at Notre Dame and be in good academic standing. They must have the endorsement and pledge of supervision from a faculty member.
Students selected for the program will begin preparing for their summer experience through a series of orientations with the Institute (see website for more).
Undergraduates are eligible for only one Kellogg/Kroc undergraduate research grant.
Freshman and sophomores seeking to do research in Africa, Asia or Latin America should see Experiencing the World Fellowships.
