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

In most 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.

The deadline to apply for an ETW fellowship (freshmen and sophomores), a Kellogg/Kroc Undergraduate Research Grant (juniors) or a Summer Entrepreneurial Internship has passed.


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.
