The Kellogg Institute for International Studies supports undergraduate research in Africa, Asia, and Latin America related to the Kellogg research themes of democracy and human development. Students can apply for an Experiencing the World (ETW) Fellowship or a Kellogg/Kroc Undergraduate Research Grant  to receive training, funding, and reentry support.

In some cases, applicants for the above programs are expected to work with a host organization, which requires students to make contact with the organization where they would like to intern or do research. Students should work closely with the organization to develop a work plan.

Note: All applicants should meet with Holly Rivers or Rachel Thiel at least one month in advance of the deadline to ensure that the organization, site, and plan proposed will meet Kellogg guidelines.

*If there is a reason that a virtual experience would be a better fit for you, please set up a meeting with Rachel Thiel to discuss the possibility.
