The Humanities Research Institute is a unique research immersion opportunity for select Marymount undergraduates in summer 2012. The Institute is a project of Marymount’s DISCOVER program.
How does it work?
Approximately 4 to 5 students will be selected as Institute Scholars. Each will be awarded a grant for room and board in order to reside on Marymount’s campus from May 21 to August 3 and receive a $1,000 stipend.
The Institute begins with a four-week symposium – Institute Scholars will meet two times a week over the four-week period. During the symposium, these scholars along with faculty and occasional guests will explore the symposium’s theme
through literature, history, philosophy, theology, and the visual and performing arts. After the four-week symposium, students will spend the remainder of the summer developing a research project to pursue in the fall. >> Learn more about the 2012 theme and the symposium
Throughout the summer, there will be weekly events that take advantage of the cultural offerings of the greater Washington, DC, area.
Can I participate?
This Institute is open to any student who wishes to be part of a small community of scholars pursuing research in the humanities. But you don’t have to be majoring in a humanities discipline to participate.>> Find out more about who should apply
