The Scholars-in-Residence Program encourages upper-year students to live on campus as a research community in an environment that fosters their ongoing academic excellence. This community of Scholars will connect academically high-achieving students with one another, along with resources on campus and opportunities for further intellectual and leadership development.
King’s students in scholarship standing in any graduate program, or undergraduate program entering at least their second year, are eligible to apply. Students must be able to demonstrate academic achievement and a commitment to the life of the College. Students in their thesis-writing year are particularly encouraged to apply.
Students selected as Scholars-in-Residence will live in residence during the 2019-2020 academic year in a guaranteed single room. Students will organize one academic-related community program a year. Examples include, but are not limited to:
Scholars-in-Residence are encouraged to discuss how their academic work is progressing throughout the year with others in the King’s community, and will be role models particularly to first-year students.
Each Scholar-in-Residence will receive a $2,500 scholarship to use towards residence fees.
Hard copies of applications must be submitted by January 28, 2019 at 3 p.m. to the FYP Office or to the Alex Hall Front Desk.
Scholars-in-Residence will be announced in February, at which point recipients will need to complete the residence application process.
