The Cottrell Lecture Series is a program of guest lectures by Cottrell Scholars at either PUIs or R1s. Applications should include one R1 partner and one PUI partner. At least one partner should be a Cottrell Scholar. Applications should address the potential for productive relationships between the two institutions to increase opportunities for undergraduate research and sustaining research at the PUI. We encourage partnerships between faculty in different fields with the potential for meaningful collaboration. Participants in the Cottrell Lecture Series will be eligible for future funding to sustain collaborations that result from the Cottrell Lecture Series.
