How to Apply

Naughton Fellowships for undergraduates are awarded by nomination from faculty advisors. Interested students should speak with their faculty supervisors for more details. All faculty must submit their nominations to Bob Cunningham as soon as possible. 

Selection Criteria

The selection of the Naughton Fellows will be administered by the Naughton Fellowship Committee, with the University's diversity statement in mind.

Significant importance and preference will be given to those candidates who demonstrate academic excellence. However, the committee will consider several criteria, including:

  • the interest, ability, and potential of the candidate to study their chosen field;
  • the candidate’s capacity to successfully complete the program of study; and
  • the candidate’s desire and ability to serve as a cultural ambassador abroad.

Candidates must have at least one year remaining in their undergraduate program in order to be considered.

 

The onus is on the candidate to complete the appropriate application form to demonstrate the degree to which he/she meets these criteria.

General Terms and Conditions

Each recipient must complete a summary report of his/her research accomplishments at the end of the program.
