Faust Library Fellowship

Faust Library Fellowship

Faust Library Fellowships provide recipients with the opportunity to work closely with a variety of faculty on a range of exciting research, writing, and service projects. Students receive an excellent educational experience and an attractive package of financial benefits. The program is competitive and is designed to recruit students with superb motivation and research and writing skills (which may be demonstrated in ways not measured by GPA), and faculty members who are willing to build rich educational components into their research and service projects.

Fellows will be expected to work approximately 150 hours per semester (roughly 10 hours/week), and should be prepared to make a firm commitment to that level of time and effort.  Applicants should take into account any planned outside work or extra-curricular activities before making this commitment.  Fellows will be required to maintain and submit time records as a prerequisite to receipt of the stipend payments and tuition benefits described below.
