Undergraduate Fellowships in Public Humanities

About the Undergraduate Fellowships in Public Humanities

A humanities education has never been more salient. With the new public humanities fellowships, King’s undergraduate students have the opportunity to experience summer work terms focused on relevant areas of interest. These fellowships offer current King’s students and partnering organizations and businesses the opportunity to work together during summer placements. Students apply to receive targeted workplace experience offered between their first and final years. Partner organizations and businesses gain an unparalleled opportunity to work with students to mutually discover what a humanities perspective can bring to a workplace.

Funding support for King’s Undergraduate Fellowships in Public Humanities is generously provided through a gift from BMO Financial Group.

Students selected through a competitive process will receive a fellowship grant of $5,000 for an eight- to 10-week placement. All current undergraduate students are eligible to apply provided they will be returning to King’s for the following fall term and will have completed the Foundation Year Program, and have not held the fellowship before. These fellowships will allow students a meaningful connection between the classroom and the world around them.

We are currently accepting applications from students and organizations interested in participating in the 2022 Undergraduate Fellowships in the Public Humanities program. Submit your application by April 8, 2022.
