Successful applicants are expected to work on their scholarship on a full-time basis, 30 hours or more a week (with the understanding that this amount will necessarily vary based on the project), for at least eight weeks, preferably 10 weeks, over the summer under the close mentorship of a Bucknell faculty member. Scholars will also participate in weekly scholarly and professional development workshops that will meet over much of the summer.
The application is in two parts. One should be written by the student, the other by the faculty mentor. Each part is submitted separately, though the faculty mentor should review the student’s portion. The application must include a clearly defined set of goals for the proposed scholarship that are achievable within a period of eight to 10 weeks during the summer months. Both the student’s and faculty mentor’s parts should evidence a close intellectual collaboration between the student and the faculty mentor.
Submission Deadline: March 31, 2020
