2018-2019 LaGuardia Mellon Humanities Scholars Application
The LaGuardia Mellon Humanities Scholars is program, supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, to enrich LaGuardia students’ understanding of the Humanities and jobs within the Humanities, as well as to help them build pathways for academic and career success. LaGuardia Mellon Humanities Scholars is meant for LaGuardia students from various majors who are exploring a humanities pathway towards graduation and their future education and career.

Through biweekly meetings and extra humanities enrichment activities, these students will be exposed to modes of critical and creative thinking, various historical and cultural perspectives, good writing and presentations, and aesthetic appreciation. They will also further develop their research skills, communication, collaboration, project management, and digital literacy skills.

Students selected for this group will collaborate within academic and student affairs to create projects which will be usable for the individual student and the college-wide community. With the student at the center, this group will determine what they need to succeed to towards graduation and their future careers. They will work within their major, select humanities based activities (co-curricular), be advised by peers (vice-versa), graduate fellows, and faculty mentors to engage in a project that will advance them towards baccalaureate and graduate degrees but also towards their future careers. In addition, they will work within student affairs to share their exploration with the LaGuardia community.

LaGuardia Mellon Humanities Scholars will be given a $1,000 stipend, divided into three payments given during the Fall Session I, Fall Session II, and Spring Session I during the 2017-2018 academic year. They will also get free tickets to a few cultural enrichment activities, and metro tickets to attend special events.
