Event description: 

The Franke Program in Science and the Humanities is pleased to award the Franke Fellowship in Science and the Humanities, which is made possible by the generous support of Mr. and Mrs. Richard (‘53) and Barbara Franke. Three to five fellowships of $2,000 will be awarded to rising seniors to support senior essay, research, or art project proposals that explore new and productive intellectual connections between science and the humanities. Interdisciplinary research or art projects should explicitly engage both scientific and humanistic issues or content. Awards are intended to support research during the summer between junior and senior year, or during the following academic year.

Awardees will be asked to participate in dinners with Franke Program faculty and Mrs. Franke to discuss the proposed projects (in the fall) and to present the final results of their work (during the spring semester).

Fellowship monies are intended to offset costs related to the proposed research or project. These include travel costs, accommodation, and supplies and materials.
