Hall Center Scholars

Each year, the Friends of the Hall Center sponsor a small number of Hall Center Scholars.  The program provides opportunities for KU undergraduates who have strong academic credentials and have demonstrated significant activity within KU, to interact with the well-known authors, scholars, and public intellectuals who speak in our Humanities Lecture Series. The program started in the Fall of 2007.
