Fellowship program

Five College Fellowship Program 2011-12*

Five Colleges is pleased to announce its search for Fellows for the
2011-2012 academic year.

Five College Fellowships offer year-long residencies for doctoral students
completing dissertations. The program supports scholars from
under-represented groups and/or scholars with unique interests and histories
whose engagement in the Academy will enrich scholarship and teaching.
Normally, four fellowships are awarded each year.

Each Fellow is hosted within an appropriate department or program at Amherst
College, Hampshire College, Mount Holyoke College or Smith College. (At
Smith, recipients hold a Mendenhall Fellowship.) This is a residential
fellowship. Fellows are provided research and teaching mentors and connected
through the consortial office to resources and scholars across the five
campuses, which include UMass Amherst. The office also supports meetings of
the Fellows throughout the year.

The fellowship includes a stipend of $30,000, a research grant, health
benefits, office space, housing or housing assistance, and library
privileges at all five campuses belonging to the consortium.

While the award places primary emphasis on completion of the dissertation,
most fellows teach at their hosting institution, but never more than a
single one-semester course.
