As part of the Center's mission to serve as a research hub that fosters exchange and collaboration across the university, the undergraduate research fellows program focuses on providing a rich interdisciplinary atmosphere for student development. Students accepted into the program work directly with a faculty member on current research projects involving religion and conflict and take a special class with the Center's director. Fellows also have an opportunity to meet with visiting scholars, attend special lectures, compete for research, travel and conference funds, and qualify for three credit hours and a scholarship of $1000.

Faculty Research Assistance
The Center for the Study of Religion and Conflict operates an Undergraduate Research Fellows program designed to expose highly qualified undergraduate students to research projects related to some aspect of religion and conflict. Students participating in this program function, essentially, as research assistants on faculty projects. This program, and similar programs in Political Science, Communication and the School of Life Science have proven extremely successful and popular with faculty members as the general high caliber and drive of honors-level students provides an exceptional pool of talent.
If you would like to participate in this program please direct all proposals and questions to email@example.com with “Undergraduate Research Fellows” mentioned in the subject heading.
