All members of the junior class are invited to an Open House in the Lounge at the Center for the Humanities (95 Pearl Street) on Wednesday, March 6th (11:50-1pm) to learn more about the Center and its Student Fellowship Program. Come meet our current Student Fellows and learn about their projects and experiences at the Center while enjoying a delicious lunch!
A total of eight Student Fellowships are awarded each year 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 events and activities. Among these events are the Center’s Monday Night Lecture series; colloquia discussions on Tuesdays, 10:30-1:00; and occasional Center conferences. One course credit is awarded for the 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 relating to the Center theme for the semester or year. The 2019-2020 theme is: “ Revolutions: Material Forms, Mobile Futures.” The project need not be underway at the time of the application. Student Fellows have the opportunity to work closely with Faculty Fellows, Post-Doctoral Fellows, and Visiting Research Fellows in residence at the Center. The Center also provides up to $500 in travel funding to Student Fellows for travel to archives, libraries, museums, conferences, performances and other sites necessary to the completion of their senior projects.
Applications for student fellowships are due by 4pm on Thursday, March 28th, 2019. Applicants will be informed of the Center Advisory Board’s decision by Friday, April 12th, 2019.
