Promoting transformative education through research and national fellowships

The College Center for Research and Fellowships (CCRF) supports students as they pursue transformative experiences through scholarly undergraduate research and nationally competitive fellowships. CCRF promotes meaningful connections between faculty and students, encourages mentorship, provides high-impact advising and educates the UChicago community about opportunities for all College students and alumni.

CCRF staff support students by helping them to identify relevant research and fellowship opportunities, assist in strategically planning and seeking out those opportunities, and closely mentor students through rigorous application processes. Current students interested in pursuing scholarly and creative undergraduate research should consult the resources available here and are also encouraged to search the research opportunities database. Students and alumni are encouraged to use the searchable fellowship opportunities database to learn more about national scholarships, fellowships, and post-graduate opportunities.

The College Center for Scholarly Advancement (CCSA) has been renamed the College Center for Research and Fellowships (CCRF) given its expanded scope, which now includes all undergraduate research support.
