Oregon State University recognizes significant engagement and accomplishment in undergraduate research and the arts by awarding an honor distinction of “Research Fellow” or “Arts Fellow” to students in any major upon completion of a significant research or creative arts project under mentorship of an OSU faculty mentor. The distinction will be noted on the student’s transcript, and the student may wear a blue honor cord at graduation ceremonies.
“Research/Creativity” is defined here as modes of scholarship and inquiry as they are variously practiced and defined in OSU’s academic disciplines.
Students can seek both the “Research Fellow” and the “Arts Fellow notation on their transcript but for separate projects.

Note: Graduate students and post-doctoral scholars are not eligible to serve as the OSU faculty mentor but may mentor undergraduates seeking the “Research Fellow” or “Arts Fellow” along with the OSU faculty mentors.
