For Undergraduate Students
The following is a list of research and funding opportunities for UW-Madison humanities undergraduate students.
The Public Humanities Exchange Program for Undergraduates (HEX-U) is a new program expected to begin in Spring 2017. Modeled off of our successful graduate public humanities exchange program (HEX), HEX-U is a high-impact practice for undergraduates who wish to make meaningful connections between their humanities scholarship and the needs of the local community through new models of social engagement. The program will provide training, mentoring, and small grant financial support to a small cohort of undergraduate scholars as they plan and implement creative community projects in partnership with Dane County organizations.
The annual Iwanter Prize provides an unrestricted $2,000 award to one graduating senior who, through a senior thesis and general academic distinction, demonstrates outstanding humanities-based scholarship of a broad and interdisciplinary nature. The award is made possible by a gift to the UW Foundation by Sidney E. Iwanter, an alumnus of the College of Letters & Science (BA History, 1971). Read about past winners.
The Center for the Humanities employs several undergraduate student interns every semester. If you have strong web, writing, and communication skills and an avid interest in the humanities, we'd love to hear from you. Please send a letter of inquiry to Emily Clark at firstname.lastname@example.org.
