The objective of the Experiential Learning Fellowship program is to encourage and support individual undergraduate student projects in the humanities, arts, and social sciences for the purpose of providing opportunities for experiential learning to students seeking a major or minor in the College of Arts and Sciences. Three funds comprise the Experiential Learning Fellowship: the Rocks, the Traub, and the Experiential Learning Fellowship in Anthropology. Although the application processes for the funds are the same, each has its own eligibility requirements.
The College of Arts and Sciences intends to award up to three fellowships each year, one for each fund. The average award size for the Rocks, the Traub, and the Experiential Learning Fellowship in Anthropology is $5,000 (though the Traub can award a larger fund).
What the Experiential Learning Fellowship Program Funds
A wide range of student projects is eligible for funding, including but not limited to support of research projects, Senior Capstone projects, travel to research conferences to present research, or project-oriented travel abroad associated with completion of majors or minors programs in the arts, humanities, and social sciences.
What the Experiential Learning Fellowship Program Does Not Fund
The Rocks, the Traub, and the Experiential Learning Fellowship in Anthropology funds may not be used for any purchase not contained within a proposal’s committee-approved budget.
Specifically, the Experiential Learning Fellowship will not fund high-technology equipment including but not limited to the following: still or moving image cameras and accessorial equipment, cell phones, and computers and computer accessories. Obtaining use of such equipment is the responsibility of the fellows. If you have questions about this restriction, please contact Aleksandar Zivic at firstname.lastname@example.org.
