CASE Fellowship Requirements

The CASE program is designed to be an on-campus, intensive student experience.

One of the intents of the program is to help create a vibrant scholarly atmosphere in the summer.  As such, students are expected to do their work regularly on campus.  Work space in the library on campus will be provided to students who do not have office, lab or studio space available in their mentor’s department.

CASE Fellows are required to:

  1. Attend an orientation meeting in May.
  2. Attend and participate in the weekly program seminar and lunch meeting during the four- or eight-week period of their program.
  3. Attend required workshops and training (may vary by discipline) and attend group social events.
  4. Have regular meetings with their mentor.
  5. Attend and present at the opening session. At the opening session, each student will present their project concept or plan.
  6. Attend an administrative wrap-up meeting during the last week of the 4 or 8 week period.
  7. Attend the culminating CASE events.
  8. Submit an acceptable abstract or project statement for Investigations.
  9. Submit an acceptable product to be placed in Constellation, the Institutional Repository.
  10. Give a final presentation at the Fall CASE Showcase. To prepare, a practice presentation during the final week of the program is also required.
  11. CASE Summer Fellows are expected to present their work in at least one external venue or conference in the year following their fellowship.
