The College of Arts and Sciences has extended the deadline to submit proposals for its Experiential Learning Fellowship programs: The Rocks Fellowship and The Traub Fellowship.

The new deadline to submit an application is Friday, June 12, 2020.

The goal of these programs is to encourage and support experiential learning opportunities for undergraduates pursuing majors or minors in selected humanities, arts, and social science disciplines in the College of Arts and Sciences. The eligibility criteria for each fellowship program can be found on their respective webpages.

The college is seeking to fund projects that can be conducted during the summer of 2020 without domestic or international travel or access to the university campus. If chosen to receive a Rocks or Traub Experiential Learning Fellowship, you will be awarded a stipend of up to $3,000 and be expected to commit at least 30 hours a week to your project for 6 to 8 weeks.

Project proposals should be submitted through the Experiential Learning Fellowship website. Please complete the application cover sheet and provide a proposal (500 words or less) that outlines your objectives of your project and explains how you will achieve them. An itemized budget and faculty recommendation are not required for this special request for proposals. If you receive funding, you may be required to provide interim progress reports detailing work completed and a final report on your project and fellowship experience.

Any questions regarding the fellowship programs or application requirements can be directed to Aleksandar Zivic in the Office of the Dean, College of Arts and Sciences.
