The Bailey College of the Environment (COE) Research Fellowship Program allows current Wesleyan undergraduate students to undertake research on environmental topics under the guidance of a faculty mentor during summer or fall or spring semesters. The projects must relate to any of the broad themes covered by Environmental Studies and the Bailey College of the Environment. The scope of environmental topics is intended to be interpreted broadly; research may be undertaken using techniques, approaches, and paradigms from all majors or major programs. Fellowships are available to all current Wesleyan undergraduate students, regardless of class year or major and may be undertaken at Wesleyan or off-campus. Students must be current Wesleyan undergraduate students for the duration of their fellowship.

Some examples of COE-supported fellowships might include: working on an organic farm in California, conducting research in a science lab at Wesleyan, undertaking an environmental justice art project in Costa Rica, or researching the economics of a carbon tax with a professor at Wesleyan.
