Mellon Undergraduate Research in the Humanities & Social Sciences Research and Pre-Thesis Fellowships
The goals of the Mellon Undergraduate Research Fellowship program are to provide opportunities for students (1) to gain critically important research skills and training in a faculty-directed research fellowship and (2) to pursue their own research questions and more fully develop their senior theses with a pre-thesis fellowship.
- Research Fellowship: Scripps College students who have completed or are enrolled in Core 3 and whose faculty-directed research projects are in the humanities or social sciences.
- Pre-Thesis Fellowship (not available for fall): Scripps College juniors whose senior thesis will be in the humanities or social sciences. Juniors studying abroad are eligible for this award. This award does not fund thesis research for seniors
Deadline for Spring and Summer Applications- February 11th
Deadline for Fall Applications- September 16th
IRB and IACUC information
If a student’s research involves work with human participants, (e.g. surveys, interviews, taking oral histories) she must apply for approval from the Institutional Review Board (IRB). See http://www.scrippscollege.edu/academics/irb for information on how to apply, including the link to the online application. The student must meet with the IRB chair prior to the application deadline to get guidance on proposing a project that will meet IRB requirements.
For questions on whether or not the project requires IRB review, contact IRB administrator Professor Jennifer Armstrong (firstname.lastname@example.org).
If a student’s research involves work with animals, she must apply for approval from the KS Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (http://www.kecksci.claremont.edu/research/).
Contact Professor Melissa Coleman (email@example.com) with questions about animal use.
