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 students are eligible to apply providing they are enrolled for the fall term and have previously taken the Foundation Year Program. These fellowships will allow students a meaningful connection between the classroom and the world around them.
Current students are encouraged to apply. Deadline for application is midnight, June 18. Verification of status as a current student will be required before a fellowship is confirmed.
Note: students will need to have access to a computer as well as internet access to participate in a fellowship.
