This competitive program introduces graduate students to the intellectual and practical aspects of addressing and collaborating with members of a public through their scholarship. Participants take part in an interdisciplinary spring seminar and receive a fellowship over the summer as they carry out a project in collaboration with their community partners and a faculty mentor.
Congratulations to the 2020 Mellon Public Scholars Cohort!
