Summer Fellowships

CCS provides students in all CCS majors with the opportunity to spend a summer engaged in research, creative activities, or entrepreneurial-focused projects. These opportunities are funded by The Create Fund through the generosity of committed donors to the CCS undergraduate experience.


The application period for summer 2019 will open in February. The College plans to announce award decisions to 2019 CCS Summer Fellowship applicants no later than mid-May. Please check this page for the latest information.

The Create Fund provides summer stipends to CCS students to pursue a creative activity such as production of an original work of art, music, or written word or to pursue an entrepreneurial project. The projects must be supervised by a UCSB faculty member.

The Create Fund provides summer stipends to support CCS Biology, Chemistry/Biochemistry, Computing, Mathematics, and Physics students engaged in research working in a UCSB faculty member’s laboratory.
