At Johns Hopkins, asking questions is just as important as answering them. No matter what you have in mind, the Woodrow Wilson Undergraduate Research Fellowship Program will give you not only the freedom to ask the questions, but also the resources to find the answers. The program provides eligible students up to $10,000 over four years to investigate a research topic of their design. Students in the Johns Hopkins Krieger School of Arts & Sciences routinely work with their advisers to shape their own courses of study, even as freshmen. Approximately 70 percent of all Johns Hopkins undergraduates engage in some form of meaningful research during their time here, and the Wilson Research Fellowship helps students achieve their research goals. Jacob Appet (pictured above), a Writing Seminars major, used his Woodrow Wilson Fellowship to fund a feature-length film that he wrote, directed, and scored.
