LAH Mentors Needed!

Hello LAHers! As this year is coming to an end we are sending out the mentor applications for next year’s incoming LAH cohort. Becoming a mentor not only looks really great on your resume but also fulfills the leadership requirement to graduate as a distinguished LAH Scholar. There will be awards given out at the yearly banquet for outstanding mentors and other fun events and potential incentives for mentors who consistently meet with their mentees. There are no specific length requirements on the application (1-3 sentences is fine), the questions are just aiming to try to get enough information about mentors so we can best match you with someone compatible.

Interested in becoming a mentor for the 2024-2025 academic year? Click the link here to apply!

The TCE Summer Exploration Grant 2024 is now open. Priority will be given to students in greatest financial need. The application will require students to communicate how their academic or career plans will benefit from the experience or resource.

Publish Your Humanities Research!

The Searcher is a new academic journal sponsored by the Department of English that provides undergraduate students with the opportunity to publish scholarly work in the humanities. By offering a broad platform for multiple disciplines, we hope to highlight how meaningful themes emerge and span across the humanities. Any and all research is welcome, but we especially encourage English literature research.

We are currently open to submissions and would love to showcase the outstanding research students have accomplished, whether for class or independently. We accept works under 2,000 words for our e-journal and works over 2,000 words for our print journal—a copy of which will be provided for free to contributors! Submit to the print journal by April 24th, 11:59 PM via the link here!
