How to Apply
Graduate students are eligible to apply to IHUM in their third year of graduate study. The next round of applications will be due to Barbara Leavey in 207 Scheide-Caldwell House on Tuesday, March 7, 2017. They should consist of the following elements, printed out and paper-clipped (not stapled) together:
- A completed application form, signed by your departmental Director of Graduate Studies. (Download the form here.)
A five hundred word description of your interdisciplinary interests as they bear on your prospective dissertation work: in particular, the researches or experience, outside of your departmental training, that would warrant an additional year of support. The overriding criteria are intellectual seriousness and adventurousness.
- A twenty-page writing sample representative of your interests.
You should also arrange for a one-paragraph recommendation from an advisor in your department, ordinarily one of your dissertation advisors, to be emailed directly to Barbara Leavey (firstname.lastname@example.org) by the March 7th deadline.
When you submit your paper application, please also email an electronic copy (as a .doc or .pdf file) of the description of your interests and of the writing sample to Barbara Leavey (email@example.com).
Finalists will be invited for a brief interview on March 28, 2017 and notifications will be made shortly after.
