The Knapp provides free housing and offers an opportunity for selected graduate students to share research, culture and interests with other dissertators from diverse disciplines. Fellows host monthly seminar dinners – a formal setting for the exchange of ideas. For these events, fellows recruit speakers and invite guests from across campus and the community at large. The graduate school administers this opportunity.
The Graduate School announces the Marie Christine Kohler Knapp House Fellowship in February. The Department of History nominates one graduate student each year for the Knapp fellowship. To be considered as the History nominee, submit to Jane Williams a CV, a letter of interest describing what qualities you will bring to the house and how you will benefit from being in the house, and a one-page public dissertation summary describing your research.
Visit the Knapp House Fellowship in the Humanities webpage for more information.
