Mellon Undergraduate Summer Fellowship

Mellon Undergraduate Summer Fellowship

Summer 2020

UPDATE: Due to disruptions to work related to the COVID-19 outbreak, the deadline for this fellowship has been extended to FRIDAY, MARCH 27, 2020


The Price Lab is pleased to announce Mellon Summer Research Fellowships for undergraduates in the School of Arts and Sciences at the University of Pennsylvania. The fellowships have been designed to allow students to take advantage of the relatively less-hectic summer months to pursue work in the digital humanities alongside a faculty supervisor. Students may use their fellowship to work on a faculty led digital project or an independent project provided that a faculty member closely supervise their work.

We will select up to 3 fellows who will receive a stipend of $4,500 payable in three installments of $1,500: one at the beginning of the summer, one in the middle, pending satisfactory completion of a brief evaluation of their progress, and one at the end of summer upon submission of a final report.

Interested students will neen to submit the following:

  • A 500 word proposal that describes the faculty led project and the work you plan on completing over the summer.
  • An unoffical copy of your transcript.
  • A letter of support from the faculty member with whom you will be working.

Please send each of these items as an email attachment to by midnight  ̶M̶a̶r̶c̶h̶ ̶1̶5̶,̶ ̶2̶0̶2̶0̶  March 27, 2020. Please mention Mellon Undergraduate Summer Fellowship in the subject line.
