Academic Year Fellows

The CEI Academic Year Fellows program provides partial support for students who want to work part-time on an applied research project during the academic year.

The end product of this project might be a written document (technical report, feature article, academic paper, journal, etc) or a presentation. Fellow projects vary in length of time commitment and funding. Award stipends range from $500-$750.
