MURP Student Research Fellows

Each year SURP awards research fellowships to the most qualified students in the Master of Urban & Regional Planning program. The fellows are each assigned to a designated research project or ongoing work under the direct guidance of a SURP faculty member. Past fellows have had the opportunity to assist in ground-breaking research on post-disaster recovery planning, urban adaptation to sea-level rise, regional economic development, hyper-local community empowerment, urban and regional mobility, place-making, and more.

MURP Research Fellows receive a full tuition waver and a stipend in accordance with the number of hours per week they are assigned to their work.

The 2014-2015 MURP Research Fellows are:

  • Chelsey Byrnes
  • Nicole Galehouse
  • Erin Kelley
  • Sylvia Miller
