Leslie Center Research Fellowships for Students

The Leslie Center offers three annual fellowships of up to $1,000 to Dartmouth students. The fellowships support research or creative projects in the humanities, and projects that treat sources traditionally addressed by the humanities or that use methods developed in the humanities. Applicants are advised to consult the Center's Mission Statement. These fellowships are aimed to help students performing significant supervised research (on independent studies, honors theses, etc.); only in exceptional cases will students without faculty advisers receive fellowship support. Senior Fellows and recipients of other college fellowship awards are not eligible. The Leslie Center Advisory Committee will act as the selection committee for these awards. Applications are due  on November 1, February 1 and May 1 and must include a letter of reference from a member of the faculty.

NOTE: These fellowships are for enrolled students only.

Leslie Center Professional Development Fellowships for Students

Two annual awards, of up to $500 each, support the professional development of students. These fellowships are intended to help students who participate in unpaid internships in humanities-related areas, or students who wish to attend scholarly meetings. Applications are due November 1, February 1 and May 1. These applications must include a letter of reference from a member of the faculty.

NOTE: These fellowships are for enrolled students only.
