Trinity’s Humanities Collective is pleased to announce the launch of our Undergraduate Fellows in the Humanities Program!

We invite rising seniors interested in writing and research in the Arts  & Humanities to apply for this fellowship. Based on the quality of their proposals, three students will be selected to work on individual research projects of their own design during the school year.

Fellows will receive a stipend of $1,000, access to research funds, expanded library privileges, access to the Mellon Room (Library 411), photocopy cards, and the possibility of funding for travel to present their work at academic conferences. In addition, Humanities Fellows will be recognized at Trinity’s annual Awards Convocation.

Applicants must be full-time students, rising seniors, and able to commit themselves to their project for the full academic year. Student projects should involve in-depth, original research or creative activity that culminates in a substantial paper and a presentation at the end of the academic year at the Undergraduate Research Symposium, co-sponsored by Trinity’s Humanities Collective and the Mellon Initiative for Undergraduate Research in the Arts and Humanities.
