The Merle Kling Undergraduate Honors Fellowship
The Center for the Humanities is also pleased to support the Merle Kling Undergraduate Honors Fellowship Program. Between five and seven sophomores are selected each year for this two-year program on the merit of their original individual research proposals. Throughout the course of the program, fellows meet with their faculty mentors and with each other to create a research project informed not only by their own work but also by the expertise and support of their peers. The Kling program also supports opportunities for summer research and encourages fellows to participate in a range of public humanities projects underwritten by the Center for the Humanities. At the end of the program, fellows will have completed a significant research project, built lasting academic partnerships, and received a comprehensive introduction to graduate or professional-level experiences in the humanities and humanistic social sciences.
