The IRF Fellowship Program currently works with a core group of universities to provide quality education to IRF Fellows and top universities. By attending these core universities, Fellows have the opportunity to attend school with other IRF Fellows and grow the friendships that are established during the IRF Fellows Orientation Program. It also allows for many opportunities to stay involved with the IRF, IRF members, and participate in Fellows Reunions and Fellows Alumni Association Activities.
Traditional Fellows will be encouraged to attend either the Arizona State University, University of Florida, Central Florida University, Purdue University, Virginia Tech, Ohio State University, Georgia Tech, Northwestern University, University of Texas at Austin, and George Mason University. A select group of these universities have agreed to offer IRF Fellows in-state tuition. All of the schools, with the exception of Purdue University, will require the Fellows to be enrolled in a degree program. Purdue University will continue to allow Fellows to enroll in a non-degree program.
The IRF Staff will work with these Core Universities to develop contacts in the admissions offices to make the enrollment process run smoother. All Fellows will have to apply directly to the university of their choice and be accepted by and enrolled into said university before the Fellowship grant will be disbursed.
