We directly support undergraduate research through two fellowship programs that provide funding and research assistance to Johns Hopkins undergraduate students in all majors.
Next deadline: March 10, 2017
Available to both undergraduate and graduate students, the Hugh Hawkins Research Fellowships for the Study of Hopkins History are awarded annually to undergraduate or graduate students from any school or division at Johns Hopkins who wish to conduct research into an aspect of the rich history of Johns Hopkins University. Fellowship recipients are notified in the spring and conduct their research over the summer.
Special consideration will be given to projects exploring the history of diversity at Johns Hopkins or that propose a final product rooted in the digital humanities. The Hugh Hawkins Fellowships will enhance the undergraduate and graduate research experience by providing opportunities for original research in historical collections and for sharing research with the public.
Each fellowship recipient will work closely with a faculty mentor and an archivist mentor during the fellowship. Fellowship recipients’ work will be preserved in the Ferdinand Hamburger University Archives of the Sheridan Libraries, creating a rich, continually growing, and publicly available body of original scholarship that will serve as a valuable resource for generations to come.
