What is the time commitment?
The time commitment varies as your research projects progress. Typically, fellows should anticipate spending approximately 10 hours/week attending workshops and activities and working on their independent projects. Fellows will meet weekly at Mellon workshops. Also, fellows are expected to meet regularly with their Mellon faculty mentor. Throughout the academic year, fellows will work on making active progress on their independent research and preparation for graduate school. Summer months should be dedicated to research or other professional development opportunities related to these academic goals, such as the First Summer Fellowship Program (FSFP) in June, and the CSUSB Extended Summer Opportunity in August.
