G. Alfred Hess Jr. Undergraduate Research Fund (SESP)

The G. Alfred Hess Jr. Undergraduate Research Fellowship Fund (“Hess Fund”) was established in 2005-06 to honor and remember Fred Hess for his service to the School of Education & Social Policy and his generosity in mentoring undergraduate students.

The fund provides support for School of Education & Social Policy (SESP) undergraduate students who are working on a research project. The “research project” might be under the direction of a faculty member, or might be a paper or endeavor of the student’s own choosing, such as those undertaken by undergraduates in SESP’s Honors Program or as part of their degrees. Students are eligible for one award from the Hess Fund during the course of their studies.
