The application for the Hilldale Undergraduate/Faculty Research Fellowships for the academic year 2022/2023 is now open by Agency for Science, Technology, and Research for International Students in USA.
The Agency for Science, Technology, and Research hereby invites all outstanding students to apply for the 2022/2023 Fellowship. The Agency for Science, Technology, and Research has set-up a tertiary Fellowship to bolster capacity, expertise and work opportunities related to different sectors. It is intended for tertiary students at the Undergraduate research programme. The university will provide financial support for high achieving candidates. The student researcher receives $3,000, and faculty/staff research advisor receives $1,000 to help offset research costs (e.g., supplies, student travel related to the project). The stipend can be declined if it is not needed to support the student’s research. Declined stipends would be pooled to offer additional Hilldale Fellowships. Agency for Science, Technology, and Research has allocated Fellowship specifically for the following fields below.
The Agency for Science, Technology, and Research and its community believe in the potential of youth. We believe that access to education should not be dependent on wealth. Education creates opportunities for youth to acquire the knowledge and skills needed to participate in the economy, achieve upward mobility, and change the world for the better for all in it.
