Room 440 in the Blank Honors Center

Breaking down the basics of applying for funding and fellowships as an undergraduate and beyond
An information session for first, second and third year undergraduate researchers in the STEM fields

Kelly Thornburg, Honors at Iowa’s Director of Scholar Development, Lindsay Marshall of the Iowa Center for Undergraduate Research and Lori Adams from Latham Fellows Science Initiative invite you to join us for a discussion of the habits, skills, and experiences that can take you from average to competitive as an applicant on campus and at the national level.
In addition to this insider knowledge, we will also be sharing information about three priority STEM fellowship opportunities for undergraduates at the University of Iowa:
the Goldwater Scholarship, the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship and the Gates Cambridge Scholarship.  
This workshop will take place on Friday, April 24, 2015 in Room 440 in the Blank Honors Center from 12:30 to 1:20 PM.  To facilitate a more intimate conversation (and great lunch!), we will be capping this information session at 25 participants.  This workshop will focus on the needs of first, second and third year students – graduating seniors should enjoy their Friday afternoon in another way.
To join us for this session and for lunch from Oasis, students must RSVP at
