Hobson Wildenthal Honors College at UT Dallas

The Green Fellowship

The Green Fellows program offered jointly by The University of Texas at Dallas and the UT Southwestern Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, provides a semester-long, fully paid undergraduate research fellowship. The program is most appropriate for those students interested in Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. pathways after graduation from UT Dallas.

Green Fellows pursue individual research projects under the direction of the graduate school faculty at UT Southwestern. Fellows are selected by the faculty mentors and assigned to a research project according to each fellow's previous training and research interests.

Green Fellows gain experience in modern research techniques and plan and execute an experimental strategy to answer a scientific question. The program introduces students to the kinds of projects encountered during postgraduate research training and fosters an understanding of the planning, discipline, and teamwork involved in the pursuit of answers to current questions in the biological sciences.

At the end of the semester, fellows will present their research in a research forum. In addition to intensive research, Green Fellows attend lectures and seminars on the UT Southwestern campus.

Students from the following majors are eligible and encouraged to apply:

  • Biochemistry
