IE Fellowships provide award recipients with the opportunity to supplement their full-time program by participating in an on-campus project. Fellowship applications are evaluated based on the knowledge and/or expertise a candidate may be able to bring to an open project, as well as whether or not the candidate will fit within the existing project team. Applications are primarily evaluated on merit, however proof of financial situation is a required part of the application process.
