Students will participate in a fully developed Summer Mellon Fellowship Curriculum. There is a detailed syllabus which will articulate goals, objectives, and outcomes, and Fellows will engage in weekly class meetings. We regularly invite speakers whose topics range from graduate school preparation to research currently being conducted. For future cohorts, it is expected that mentors will develop reading lists for their mentees relevant to their research projects.
Thank you to the incoming Mellon Fellows for your upcoming dedication, determination, and focused work efforts.
Thank you to the faculty who will essentially donate much of their time to shape the minds and goals of these students, support their scholarly research, and who will share with them the rewards and challenges of entering the professoriate.
The rewards of participating in the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship are many. For those of you who do not know exactly what graduate school entails and are interested in a conversation about your future goals, I welcome your questions and your fears of the unknown. Thank you for your interest. I look forward to the possibility of working with you.
