Five College Fellowship Program 2012-13

******

Five Colleges is pleased to announce its search for Fellows for the 2012-2013 academic year.

Five College Fellowships offer year-long residencies for doctoral students completing dissertations. The program supports scholars from under-represented groups and/or scholars with unique interests and histories whose engagement in the Academy will enrich scholarship and teaching. This year we expect to award four fellowships for 2012-13.

Each Fellow will be hosted within an appropriate department or program at Amherst College, Hampshire College, Mount Holyoke College or Smith College. (At Smith, recipients hold a Mendenhall Fellowship.) Applications are to the program, not to a specific hosting campus.

This is a residential fellowship. Fellows are provided research and teaching mentors and connected through the consortial office to resources and scholars across the five campuses, which include UMass Amherst. The office also supports meetings of the Fellows throughout the year.

The fellowship includes a $30,000 stipend, a research grant, health benefits, office space, housing or housing assistance, and library privileges at all five campuses belonging to the consortium.

While the award places primary emphasis on completion of the dissertation, most fellows teach at their hosting institution, but never more than a single one-semester course.

To apply: Application is online through the Human Resources office at Smith College, which has agreed to administer this search on behalf of the Consortium.

Term of Fellowship: August 31, 2012 to May 31, 2013 (non-renewable)

Stipend: $30,000

Review of Applications Begins: January 2, 2012

Awards Announced: March, 2012
