Social Science and Humanities Research Opportunities for Students
The Kenyon Summer Scholars program provides opportunities for students to work in close collaboration with faculty mentors in the social sciences and humanities as full participants in the processes of creating a research plan, executing a research project, and preparing results for presentation in a public forum. Summer Scholars working on the Kenyon campus form a special community, with participants coming together for discussions and social activities. This three year pilot program is funded by Kenyon College. It is open to students working with faculty members in any department or program in the humanities or social sciences. Selections for these competitive awards are made by a committee of faculty members from these disciplines. Learn more in the program announcement.
