Main Page Content
Applications for the Spring 2014 John and Elsie Mae Ferentz Undergraduate Fellowships for Research are now being accepted and are due Monday, Dec. 2. Up to six $1,000 Ferentz Fellowships will be awarded by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS).
Made possible by a gift to the UI Foundation from Kirk and Mary Ferentz in honor of Kirk’s parents, the awards are given to provide support and encouragement to undergraduate students who conduct research under the guidance of a tenured or tenure-track faculty member in CLAS. To be eligible, students must participate in or complete an honors research project, a guided independent-study project, a capstone course, or the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree during the semester of the award.
“A strong liberal arts program is a critical component of the strong reputation that the University of Iowa enjoys,” Kirk Ferentz says. “Mary and I are honored to be a part of helping students within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.”
