Applications sought for McGillicuddy Humanities Center fellowship

Applications are being accepted for the Clement and Linda McGillicuddy Humanities Center Undergraduate Fellows program at the University of Maine.

The program offers junior and senior humanities students the support needed to concentrate on coursework, develop research and creative projects, work collaboratively with others, participate in interdisciplinary humanities programs, and gain professional skills.

Fellows attend, help plan, and promote the center’s various programs, acting as student representatives of the center’s mission.

Fellowships last two consecutive semesters. Beginning in January 2019, fellows will receive $4,000 each per semester.

In addition to attending McGillicuddy Humanities Center events and programs, fellows will participate in a biweekly meeting with a fellows coordinator to discuss their coursework and research, as well as the center’s programs. Fellows must give one live presentation to a campus audience on their research. Fellows are selectively permitted use of the center’s space in South Stevens Hall for study or other research-related purposes.

Applications will be accepted until Jan. 18. Two fellows will be chosen to begin in spring 2019. Applications will be invited again in October and March.
