Civic and Global Affairs Summer Fellowships

Lampert Associates (Applications Due 5pm, September 9)

During the 2016-17 academic year, Colgate’s Lampert Institute for Civic and Global Affairs will offer programming focused on the theme of “Crossing Borders: Peoples and Cultures, Goods and Information.”  In conjunction with those activities, the Lampert Institute is accepting applications for a select group of Colgate students from all years, who will be designated Lampert Associates. The Lampert Associates will consist of students who commit to being closely involved in the Institute’s activities over the academic year.  This involvement will include attending talks/events (about 5 per semester), meeting with speakers for informal discussion and meals, and on occasion reading articles or book chapters in conjunction with speakers’ visits.

Please also note that students who will be studying abroad for a semester this year are also welcome to apply for the program for the semester while they will be on campus. Be sure to make note of this in your letter of application.

Students who wish to participate in the Lampert Associates program should submit a brief letter expressing their interest and qualifications (up to one page), unofficial transcripts, and the name of a Colgate faculty member who might be contacted as a reference.  Application materials should be sent by email to Jason Kawall, Director of the Lampert Institute, at Applications are due at 5pm, Friday, September 9th, 2016.
