Summer 2022 NRS Field Science Fellowships - Applications now open!

Dear UC Community,


We are pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for the 2022 Field Science Fellowships, an undergraduate research program sponsored by the University of California Natural Reserve System (NRS).


The NRS Field Science Fellowship provides financial support to UC undergraduate-faculty teams conducting scientific research in the field at NRS reserves. The fellowships enable students to focus on gaining valuable hands-on research experience under the guidance of a faculty researcher. Each $6,000 award consists of a $5,000 student stipend and $1,000 to cover project costs. A maximum of $24,000 will be awarded annually.


Projects enabling the student to perform full-time research over the summer are preferred. However, we will also consider proposals that explain why the research must be conducted during another season, and how the student will be able to accomplish the research while enrolled in classes during the academic year.


Funding for the Field Science Fellowships are made possible through the Samuelsen Conservation Scholars Initiative.


Access and inclusion

All applications are welcomed and will be considered. We especially invite applications from students from ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds historically underrepresented in the sciences, including but not limited to African-American, Latinx, Native American, Pacific Islander, and first-generation college students.
