Eight Dietrich School Students Named Humanities Center Fellows

Eight Dietrich School students were named Humanities Center undergraduate research fellows. The class of 2023-24 includes scholars in majors from classics to neuroscience. The Humanities Center fellowship consists of a spring seminar, when students will develop a research project; a summer research experience funded by a $5,000 stipend; and a second fall seminar, in which fellows craft their research outcome. Each fellow is also connected to a mentor with experience in their field of inquiry.
