G. Alfred Hess Jr. Undergraduate Research Fellowship Fund

About

The G. Alfred Hess Jr. Undergraduate Research Fellowship Fund (“Hess Fund”) was established in 2005-06 to honor and remember Fred Hess for his service to the School of Education and Social Policy and his generosity in mentoring undergraduate students.

 

The fund provides support for School of Education and Social Policy (SESP) undergraduates who are working on a research project. The “research project” might be under the direction of a faculty member, or might be a paper or endeavor of the student’s own choosing, such as those undertaken by undergraduates in SESP’s Honors Program. Students are eligible for one award from the Hess Fund during the course of their undergraduate studies.

 

Students may apply for support from the Hess Fund for items that support or advance their work. Examples include but are not limited to expenses associated with data collection or analysis, travel, equipment, research subject costs, transcription services, and wages.
