The National Resource Center for The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition will once again award up to five students the Jordan Smith Undergraduate Student Fellowship to attend the 2021, 40th Annual Conference on The First-Year Experience.  The purpose and aim of this fellowship program is to advance the leadership skills and knowledge base of undergraduate students.  It is our hope that they would in turn use what they learn at the conference to enhance and encourage first-year student development on their respective campuses.  This fellowship covers the student’s conference registration fee. 

The Jordan Smith Undergraduate Student Fellowship is open to undergraduate students enrolled for the full 2020-2021 academic year. All students who are interested in first-year programs, mentoring first-year students, and/or any other aspect of first-year student life and leadership are encouraged to apply. 

Additional information, including application instructions, can be found on our website. The nomination form can be found here. The submission deadline is October 14, 2020.
