Award Information
The student researcher receives a stipend, and faculty/staff research advisor receives a stipend for costs associated with the research (e.g., supplies, faculty or student travel related to the project). If projects have more than one student or one faculty member together, the stipend levels will vary. Approximately 100 Hilldale Fellowships are awarded each year.
