Applied Humanities Summer Fellows

The Hall Center's Applied Humanities Summer Fellows program (formerly known as internships) offers exceptional and well-rounded humanities and social sciences PhD or MA candidates with opportunities to work at a variety of cultural institutions and non-profit organizations in Kansas City, Lawrence, and Topeka for a 10-week period between late May and mid-August.

The Applied Humanities Summer Fellows program provides

  • 10-week, 30-hour positions that carry a $3,000 summer stipend, plus an additional monetary allowance for mileage for positions based in Kansas City or Topeka
  • The opportunity to start and complete a defined humanities project

Organizations participating in the program in summer 2017 included Freedom’s Frontier National Heritage Area, the Independence Avenue Community Improvement District, the Kansas City Public Library, the Kansas Humanities Council, the Kansas Jewish History Project, the Kansas State Historical Society, the Lawrence Public Library, and Mid-America Arts Alliance.

Information regarding the Applied Humanities Summer Fellows for 2018 will be posted by late fall 2017.
