About the Program

Overview

Made possible by the generous support of Harpur College alumni, the Harpur Fellows Program is a unique opportunity for highly motivated undergraduates.

Modeled on the Burch Fellows Program at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, it is designed to give talented, highly motivated, imaginative undergraduates the opportunity to pursue a self-designed project that will serve the community and contribute to their intellectual and personal growth.

The fellowship provides support that will enable up to four recipients to pursue a passionate interest in a manner not possible through a regular academic program. The qualities that the fellowship is designed to recognize include passion, imagination, self-reliance, and perseverance, as well as academic achievement and potential.

Those selected will receive up to $4,000 to pursue their project and will be obligated to give a public presentation on their accomplishments when they return to campus at the conclusion of the fellowship. Harpur Fellows will pursue their project during a period when they are not enrolled at the University, normally during the summer. This will enable Fellows to devote their full attention to the project.
