Call for Applications – 2016-17 Arnhold Program

Dear Junior & Senior English Majors,

Announcing a call for applications for the 2016-17 Arnhold Undergraduate Research Fellows Program. If you are an English major interested in advanced research or in furthering your development as a creative professional and student of the humanities, the Arnhold Undergraduate Research Fellows Program is designed to aid students who want to conduct research beyond the level of ordinary course assignments. Students accepted to the program will develop their own independent research projects, discover more about conducting research in the humanities, learn about different critical and theoretical approaches, and present their research at an end-of-year research showcase.

THE PROGRAM. English majors who become Arnhold fellows receive extra guidance and assistance as they pursue their individual research goals. The program includes one-on-one research mentoring from the Arnhold Graduate Fellow; special workshops and panels designed to address topics such as research, critical methodologies, graduate school, and professionalization; and the opportunity for Fellows to present their research professionally, both by participating in an end-of-year Research Showcase, and by having their work published in an online English Department journal.

ELIGIBILITY. Applicants must be a junior or senior English Major, with a GPA of 3.5 or higher.

APPLICATION. Application materials are available here or by contacting the Undergraduate Program Advisor, Brian Ernst, at bernst@hfa.ucsb.edu

APPLICATION DEADLINE. October 28, 2016
