Each year, the American Studies program sponsors two graduate students to attend the Futures of American Studies Institute at Dartmouth. This is a weeklong summer residency program that brings together scholars from a variety of fields and institutions to pursue research and facilitate dialogue on issues related to American Studies as an interdisciplinary field. The Institute is divided into plenary sessions, which feature current work from Institute faculty, and research seminars, in which all participants present and discuss their own work-in-progress.
The award covers the Institute fee (registration, housing, and seminars), airfare, and a small food allowance.
Applications to attend the Institute must be emailed to the Director of American Studies
by April 15. Each application must include:
- A current CV
- A brief one-page description of your project
- A writing sample (10-15 pages)
