Huskies Summer Research Fellowship

The Huskies Summer Research Fellowship program is for current juniors and seniors at St. Cloud State University. The program allows students to explore a creative activity or a research topic, in all discipline areas, under the direction of a faculty mentor. The faculty mentor will be expected to mentor and supervise the student throughout the project, and also provide a letter of recommendation with the application indicating her/his support for supervising and mentoring the student during summer.
