Students in the School of Humanities and Sciences are now able to apply for the 2018 H&S Summer Scholars Program online. Through a new, streamlined application process, all H&S students will now apply through a single application portal. More information is available on the revamped Summer Scholars web page.
We have scheduled an information session for interested students next week, on Tuesday, December 5, at 12:10 in Business 301, at which a few Summer Scholars from 2017 will share their experiences in the program.
Two additional information sessions will be held during the first week of classes, on January 25
– we’ll announce those again at the start of spring semester.
All students complete the same first page of the Summer Scholars form form; the form then diverges, asking different questions depending on the student’s major and/or the type of project proposed. Through this single application, students will be considered for all available positions regardless of funding source. This includes Dana Internship positions.
While financial aid eligibility is a requirement for some of these positions (such as the Dana Interns, the Emerson Humanities Collaboration Award, and a few department-based scholarships), most of the positions are open to all students, regardless of financial need.
4) Summer Scholars will be paid $10.40/hour for full-time work (typically 40 hours); most positions are for 10 weeks, but some can be for 8 weeks, as negotiated between the faculty mentor and the scholar.
5) Subsidized campus housing will be available for interested Scholars through the campus summer housing program. This year, there will be no limitation to weekly work hours, up to the maximum of 40 hours/week, if students receive housing through the program.
For detailed information about eligibility and expectations for Scholars, please consult the complete guidelines for the program available on the website.
The deadline for proposal submission is February 12th @ noon. Awards will be announced by March 9, 2018.
