The City College Fellowships Program is an umbrella program administering two undergraduate fellowships: The City College Fellowship (CCFELL) and the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship (MMUF).  It brings together approximately 10 Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellows and 25 City College Fellows into a single, highly diverse and vibrant community of outstanding students who share a common interest in research and common aspirations to earn a Ph.D.



The Fellows arrow

All Fellows share a common interest in independent research and benefit from faculty mentoring, financial support, pre-graduate school advising, opportunities to present research at conferences, and a supportive intellectual community.

 

Eligibility arrow

The eligibility criteria and financial benefits of the two fellowships vary according to the specifications of the donors. See the description of each fellowship for details.

No student may hold more than one of the fellowships simultaneously, although it is possible to transfer from one to another for those who meet the eligibility criteria. For example, a student who wins a City College Fellowship in his or her sophomore year may apply to transfer to the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship as a rising junior.

 

Recruitment arrow

City College Fellows are recruited once a year with an application deadline of May 1. Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellows are recruited once a year with an application deadline of March 1.

 

Information arrow

The program is housed at City College in room 6/316 of NAC (North Academic Center). We may be reached by telephone (212-650-8388) or email, ccfell@ccny.cuny.edu.
