The Mellon Mays grant provides students with four forms of support: faculty mentoring, modest term-time compensation for research activities, stipend support for summer research activities, and repayment of undergraduate and/or graduate loans of up to $10,000 if fellows pursue doctoral study in one of the specified fields.
The Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship Program is located within the Office of University Scholars and Fellows (OUSF) at Duke. OUSF staff provide full support for the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship Program through services such as student advising, mentorship, and event planning. Our fellows are part of a larger community of scholars and academically engaged students at Duke University. Learn more.
