Students who wish to study an ancient or modern classic may now apply for the Lincoln Forum Summer Fellowship — a fellowship opportunity to work one-on-one with a Carthage faculty mentor and to dive more deeply into the works that continue to inform our communal discourse and enrich our inner lives.

The fellowship will allow participants to live on campus, study a foundational text with a faculty mentor, and get paid for your intellectual work!

Apply now

A foundational text is one that defines a discipline, field of study, or even an era. Examples might include groundbreaking works of art, music, literature, philosophy, political, or psychological theory, etc. Foundational texts — both ancient and modern — continually yield new insights about the human condition.

Successful applicants will be awarded on-campus room and board, and a stipend. At the end of their summer research, they will produce a thoughtful essay (~2500 words) and present their findings to the Lincoln Forum Faculty Committee.

The deadline to apply is March 6.

The Lincoln Forum thanks the Jack Miller Center, the Creigh Family Foundation, and a generous anonymous donor for their support of this program.
