Promoting academic excellence through scholarly undergraduate research and national fellowships.

The College Center for Research and Fellowships (CCRF) promotes academic excellence by empowering undergraduates to pursue two transformative educational experiences: undergraduate research and nationally competitive fellowships. CCRF promotes meaningful connections between faculty and students, encourages faculty mentorship, provides high-impact, developmental advising and educates the UChicago community about these opportunities for all undergraduates and recent alumni.
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. Undergraduates are invited to learn more about the select nationally prestigious fellowships supported by the CCRF by visiting the complete list here.  Students interested in receiving regular information on upcoming information sessions, relevant opportunities, and deadlines can subscribe to the CCRF Listserv


Identify your purpose. Pursue your passion. Follow your path.
