Welcome to the Center for Research and Fellowships (CRF).
Our Mission Statement: CRF is a results-oriented team of professionals that supports Villanovans at all levels—undergraduate, graduate, alumni, staff, and faculty—to enhance their career trajectories through mentoring, research funding, and assistance in winning competitive awards.
National Scholarships & Fellowships: Villanova has a very strong record in competitions for national scholarships and fellowships. For example, we have been a Fulbright Top-Producing Institution every year for the last 12 years in a row and have had students win prestigious and national fellowships every year. In terms of wins per student, Villanova outpaces almost every other national university. Learn about our 2020 Fellowship Recipients.
Student Research: We help undergraduates, graduate students, and alumni find, strategize, and apply for funding to do research. We also have several CRF programs that provide funding for undergraduates to do research and present the results of their findings.
Presidential Scholars Program: We provide mentorship and guidance to Presidential Scholars starting before they come to campus and continuing after they graduate.
