Nov. 29 Arts/Humanities Info Session: Research/creative projects funding; prizes; scholarships!!!

Dear undergraduate students in the arts and humanities,

I am writing to let you know about a valuable information session that will address prizes, scholarships, and opportunities to obtain funding for research and creative projects in the arts and humanities.   Honors theses and the below-listed opportunities will be addressed briefly in the first half hour, by departmental advisors (among them Ken Mahru from English) and those who run some of the programs (among them Leah Carroll, Office of Undergraduate Research and Scholarships -- URAP, Haas Scholars, and SURF; Siti Keo, Mellon-Mays Undergraduate Fellowship, and Juan Esteva, McNair and Firebaugh Scholars Programs). Then students who have participated in some of these opportunities will speak, and finally there will be a chance for attendees to meet one on one with program representatives.  The event will be held

Tuesday, November 293:30-4:30 pm
in Hearst Field Annex room D-37.


I hope to see you there!
