Kim-Frank Fellowship in the Writing Programs

If you are interested in the Kim-Frank Fellowship, please complete the application for the Ford Fellowship.

The new Kim-Frank Fellowship is awarded to a graduating senior (from any major) with an outstanding record and an interest in writing and the arts. The Fellow holds a joint academic/administrative position for a post-graduate year, doing graduate work, teaching, and event planning, working closely with the Director of Writing Programs.

As a graduate student, the Fellow is eligible to take two courses per year, to do research and teaching, and work collaboratively with faculty members. At the Russell House the Fellow organizes and supervises the writing and music events and helps with other literary events on campus. The job offers an opportunity to work with distinguished writers, journalists, and other artists.

The position offers valuable experience for anyone interested in arts programming or nonprofit work, or anyone who wants a position that offers real responsibility; it is equally useful to students planning to attend graduate or professional school.

The Fellowship includes a stipend, health insurance, and ongoing student status, which allows for loan deferment. The Fellow also has full access to the university libraries, career services, and other facilities.

How to Apply:

Applicants who have experience as a Writing Tutor or Teaching Apprentice will have preference. Seniors from all majors are encouraged to apply.

Please submit:

1)     A letter of interest explaining your academic experience and future plans

2)     A transcript

3)     A resume

4)     Two academic papers, preferably with grades and the instructors' comments

5)     The names of two faculty members who can serve as references

Your references will be contacted if you are a finalist.
