The Gould Center for Humanistic Studies will offer up to five Dunbar Fellowships in Spring 2014 to enable students to serve as Research Assistants to CMC faculty members working on projects in the humanities.
These student-faculty collaborations may be initiated either by the student or the faculty member, but the application should be for research assistance related to a specific project or projects. Moreover, the work must be undertaken during the upcoming academic year, 2014-2015.
Applications consist of the following three items:
- A one-page narrative explaining the research project, your qualifications for assisting in the faculty member’s research, and the kind of research assistance you will be providing the faculty member. Students serving as Dunbar Fellows should be involved in the faculty member’s research in a meaningful way.
- A brief statement of support from the faculty member whose research you will be assisting. Faculty members should submit this statement directly to Professor Faggen by email.
- A copy of your CMC transcript.
Applications are due by 12 noon on Tuesday, April 22. Students wishing to apply should submit their materials to Professor Robert Faggen, Director, Gould Center, by email. Decisions on awards will be announced promptly after the application deadline.
