Faculty RFP for summer research fellowships: deadline for proposals extended!

The New York Six Upstate Summer Research Fellows Program brings students and faculty together in synergistic ways around important scholarly topics relevant to the upstate New York region. This Upstate Summer Research Fellows Program will fund fellows to conduct research under the direction of a faculty mentor, ideally at another New York Six institution. 

This inter-institutional research program aims to do the following:

    • Provide new opportunities for student intellectual growth,
    • Promote student-faculty collaboration across the Consortium, and
    • Encourage interdisciplinary inquiry that connects local interests with global issues.


Student fellowships will last 6-8 weeks with the expectation that the student will work full-time on a research project at a host institution.  Fellows will spend this time on campus working with their faculty mentor. Faculty mentors facilitating the research project at the host institution will receive a $1000 stipend.


The NY6 welcomes fellowship proposals from faculty members from all institutions and disciplines who are conducting research on topics related to upstate New York. Faculty members receiving awards are expected to mentor an Upstate Summer Research Fellow, ideally from another New York Six institution, for summer 2019. Students will be invited apply for a fellowship through their school’s undergraduate research office. Upstate Summer Research Fellows will be selected by the faculty mentor in consultation with the NY6 leadership team.


Interested faculty are invited to submit proposals to NY6 Project Manager Deanna McCay, at, by Friday, December 14, 2018.
