Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all fellowship recipients for 2020-21 have had their awards transferred to 2021-22. As a result, we will not be holding a new fellowship application process until January 2022.

About the Fellowship

Students of colleges, universities, or seminaries (other than Calvin) may apply for an appointment as a Meeter Center Student Research Fellow. The appointment carries an honorarium of $1250 for a period of no less than four weeks. The honorarium is intended to be used towards expenses incurred for the fellowship (travel, accommodations, food, photocopies, books, etc.). If applicants receive a fellowship, they must come to the Meeter Center between July of the year in which the fellowship was received and the following June. On-campus housing is only available in June and July.

A Meeter Center Research Fellow normally undertakes a specific research program which implements the resources of the Meeter Center. Successful fellows are expected to acknowledge the assistance provided by the Meeter Center in any published work resulting from their period of research and to give an oral presentation on the results of that research toward the end of their stay in the Meeter Center.
