All members of the junior class are invited to apply for a semester-long Student Fellowship at the Center for the Humanities. A total of Eight Student Fellowships will be awarded by the Center’s Advisory Board (Four Student Fellows for each semester). Student Fellows share an office at the Center and take part in Center activities. Among these events are the Center’s Monday Night Lecture series; colloquial discussions on Tuesdays, 10:30-1:00; and occasional Center conferences. One course credit is awarded for a Student Fellow’s participation in the Center’s activities.
Applicants for a Student Fellowship must be planning to do a senior project (usually an honors thesis) on a topic related to a Center theme for the year. The project need not be underway at the time of the application. The themes for each semester will be broadly construed and connect with projects and problems across the disciplines. The Student Fellows will work closely with Faculty Fellows at the Center as well as with Visiting Research Fellows and Postdoctoral Fellows.
Applications for student fellowships are due at the Center by Monday, April 3, 21017.
We will let you know of the Center Advisory Board’s decision by April 10, 2017. If you have any questions, please email Erinn Savage at firstname.lastname@example.org.
