Woodrow Wilson Fellowship

Johns Hopkins undergraduates can dig deeper into the issues that matter most to them—with support along the way. The Woodrow Wilson Undergraduate Research Fellowship Program is just one way Hopkins gives students 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 own design.

Students in the Johns Hopkins Krieger School of Arts & Sciences work with their advisers to shape their own courses of study, even as freshmen. More than 70 percent of all Johns Hopkins undergraduates engage in research during their time here.

Martha used her Woodrow Wilson Fellowship funding to research the game of football in her adopted city. "Baltimore was the best model for my research. Football is so much bigger here than it is for the typical sports fan. The city is real," says Harrison.
