Flatley Center for Undergraduate Scholarly Engagement
The Flatley Center for Undergraduate Scholarly Engagement (CUSE) serves as a resource for undergraduate students who are embarking on directed or independent research. CUSE also serves as a resource for undergraduates who wish to apply for national and international fellowships.
The CUSE team has increased outreach to encourage more students to apply for fellowships. Help has also increased for students preparing for major fellowship competitions, which includes arranging mock interviews and social events to help students rehearse for events that are part of the Rhodes Scholarship competition. When fellowship guidelines permit, students can also receive guidance on written essays. Last year there were a record 38 Fulbright winners, shattering the University’s previous record of 30.
Preparing and competing for fellowships is an incomparable educational experience for students. The Flatley Center for Undergraduate Scholarly Engagement has done a tremendous job contributing to the University’s academic mission. For exemplifying the University’s core values in their endeavors, we are proud to celebrate their Team Irish Award!
