The National Resource Center for The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition will award up to five fellowships to undergraduate students for the 2016 Annual Conference on The First-Year Experience, which will be held in Orlando, Florida. The purpose of the Fellowship Program is to advance the leadership skills and knowledge base of undergraduate students so that they may in turn use what they learn at the conference to enhance and encourage first-year student development on their respective campuses. The fellowship covers the participant's conference registration fee, but no travel or lodging expenses.
The application can be found here.
