Agnes Lindsay STEM Fellowship

Students in the STEM Discovery Lab working on aerodynamics

The Agnes Lindsay fellows will be presenting their research at the Undergraduate Research Conference on April 19, 2017.

About the Program

Fellowship recipients received a stipend of $1,250 for a hands-on, project-based faculty mentored experience during the summer and fall semesters at UNH Manchester's STEM Discovery Lab and within campus student support programs and research laboratories.  

The fellowship provided a unique opportunity for Manchester high school students to experience a college environment. “Through the Fellowship, we want the students to come to campus and see for themselves that they can be successful college students,” says Mihaela Sabin, associate professor of computer science and director of the UNH STEM Discovery Lab. “It’s about fueling their excitement for discovery and finding what interests them and then encouraging them to pursue those interests.”

Conducted in summer and during the fall semester, these experiences offered fellowship recipients a minimum of 125 hours to:

  • Deepen understanding of the STEM fields and careers
  • Work with and learn from the UNH Manchester college students, faculty, and staff
  • Develop a project that improves learning activities in STEM Discovery Lab, campus student support programs, and the College research laboratories

The UNH STEM Discovery Lab administered the fellowships and an independent review panel selected the Agnes Lindsay STEM fellows.
