Mellon Fellowship slots now open to undergraduates
The Mellon Undergraduate Program is currently accepting applications from students interested in participating in a mentored program that prepares them for entering Ph.D. programs in selected disciplines after they graduate from Rice. Eligible fields are Humanities, Anthropology, Mathematics, Mathematical Sciences, Statistics, Physics, Geology, Ecology and Earth Sciences.

Applicants should be in their sophomore year as a Rice undergraduate; selection criteria include academic standing and potential, life experiences and interests, commitment to building bridges in multicultural settings and interest in pursuing graduate education.

Students who participate in the program receive a yearly stipend of $1,600, work closely with a mentor for two years and are also eligible for participation in summer fellowship programs at the end of their sophomore and senior years.

Application forms and additional information about the program can be obtained from History Professor Edward Cox at (713) 527-8750, ext. 2249.

The deadline for applications is April 15.
