Richter Fellowship due April 1, 5 p.m.
Each residential college is provided a Richter fund allocation that will award a stipend of up to $1,000 to defray the OTHERWISE UNFUNDED PORTION of the cost of a project involving independent summer study or research. A Richter Summer Fellowship is awarded for independent study and research, but not for mere travel, work or enrollment in a school. (You cannot get funded for anything solely through a Richter!)
An internship is a valid use of the Richter IF and only IF the primary component is study or research, and being part of a research team is a valid use. Awards are reported to the IRS as taxable income. Awardees must disclose the amount of any other funding supporting their proposed projects. Juniors receive preference for Richter Fellowships, but freshmen, sophomores and graduate affiliates are eligible if there are funds available. You can find more information and the application forms here: http://www.yale.edu/councilofmasters/awards.html#richter. The forms are available on the Council of Master’s Web site. Turn the forms into Gygi in the Master’s Office. The awards will be announced by mid April. Awardees must complete a Richter Summer Fellowship Summary Report and submit it to the Council of Masters Office by 5:00 PM on Friday, September 26, 2014.
