The ENS Program encourages students to reach out to faculty for opportunities to be involved with undergraduate research. For help getting involved with research, please visit https://www.uky.edu/academicenrichment/undergraduate-research/sustainability-summer-isre-fellowship.
Sustainability Summer Research Fellowships ($2,500 stipend) are funded by the Environmental Stewardship Fee and seek to promote projects that will make a significant contribution to the student’s academic growth, while concomitantly contributing to sustainability focused research initiatives at the University of Kentucky and within the community at large. Where appropriate, we are also seeking projects that will make a scholarly contribution in their discipline. Sustainability here is defined as the intersection of social, economic and environmental justice. Sponsored by the Student Sustainability Council and UK Sustainability.
Intercollegiate Sustainability Research Experiences (ISRE) ($4,500 + $500 travel stipend) are competitive summer research fellowships specifically designed for undergraduate students. Participants will spend 8-10 weeks working under the mentorship of a scientist or team in a sustainability focused research environment. Sustainability here is defined as the intersection of social, economic and environmental justice. Sponsored by the Student Sustainability Council, UK Sustainability, and The Food Connection.
