The Portz Fellowship program was launched in 2010 and is supported by the John and Edythe Portz Interdisciplinary Research Fellowship. It is intended to support creative and innovative endeavors that cross boundaries, inviting application from individuals who wish to undertake cross disciplinary research or from a team of two students from different disciplines who propose a single collaborative project. The project will be funded for a period of up to 18 months.
Honors students in good standing from 2-year colleges or 4-year colleges and universities
with current Institutional membership in NCHC may apply at any point in their undergraduate
studies. In addition to two letters of recommendation from faculty members, an
endorsement from the institutional representative named in the NCHC membership
is required. Only
per year from each member institution is permitted.
