Bunche Center for African American Studies at UCLA – Summer Humanities Institute
February

http://www.bunchecenter.ucla.edu/index.php/2012/10/summer-humanities-institute-at-ucla-program-overview/

This eight-week program is open to upper-division undergraduates (juniors or seniors), and students who have completed a baccalaureate degree in any field AND have not yet begun the first year of a graduate school program, particularly those from historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and other historically underrepresented, minority students who plan to pursue a graduate degree in the humanities or humanistic social sciences (anthropology, art history, cultural/critical studies, ethnomusicology, history, literature, political science, and sociology). Please do not apply if you intend to go to law school, professional school, or are interested in Psychology or Math/Science.

The seminars are geared to strengthen student knowledge of current conceptual approaches to scholarship in a range of humanities disciplines. The seminars are interactive and challenge students to engage in critical thinking, while providing them with opportunities to work one-on-one with Bunche-affiliated humanities faculty and graduate student mentors. The skills workshops will focus on writing and research techniques, using new information technologies for exploring the humanities, developing a research paper, and applying to graduate programs/fellowships. All participating students are expected to work on a manageable research paper based on secondary research supported by faculty mentoring and guidance. They will also present their findings in a conference setting.

Program participants will receive a stipend, as well as room and a meal allowance (half at the beginning of the program and half at the end upon successful completion of all program requirements). All program participants are required to reside in assigned University housing. Students will be reimbursed up to approximately $450 for round-trip travel (e.g., airfare, taxi) from home to UCLA. Travel reimbursement does not include meals/drinks while traveling.
