Student Summer Programs

The Center for the Humanities offers students grants for Undergraduate students on topics in the Humanities. Two different grants are available with all the application and proposal details on the Center for the Humanities website.

Student Summer Fellowships support work on scholarly or creative projects in the humanities. The Center offers up to $4000 to the student who needs a faculty mentor for the project. A paper is turned in at the end of the summer outlining the work and reflection.

Stipends for Summer Study Programs offer up to $5k for costs related to a course in the humanities disciplines. The course can be taken anywhere in the world, although the stipends do not cover travel expenses.
