Summer Fellows Program


The Summer Fellows Program is a summer bridge program for entering graduate students. Students are provided with summer support enabling them to enter research early or prepare for preliminary exams over the summer.  Fellows attend a weekly luncheon seminars, with topics geared for incoming students.

The Summer Luncheon Seminar Series is held weekly  at noon in Durant Hall.  Participants enjoy a catered lunch, the company of fellow graduate students, and a series of presentations and discussions about graduate student life, campus resources, and the academic career path.  Please reserve your lunch hour on Wednesdays to join the group of new and current students, as well as staff, faculty and featured guests.
