The English department is pleased to announce a call for proposals for the Anthony Ellis Post-Graduation Fellowship (in honor of Dr. Anthony Ellis, ’89). The fellowship will provide a stipend of $1,200.00 and institutional support to assist the Ellis Fellow in launching his/her post-graduation experience.
If you are an English major from the class of 2016 we invite you to imagine what you would do with this seed money. Would you make a short film or publish a chapbook of poems? Perhaps learn Nepali in order to travel to the Himalayas? Or plant an organic community garden in a disused urban lot? Would you journey to the place where your ancestors once lived and write the first draft of your multi-generational novel? There are no restrictions on the type of project that you may propose: if you wish to do something scholarly, creative, service-oriented, or otherwise horizon-broadening, we would like to hear about it. Best of all, there are no strings attached— all we ask in return is that you share the experience with the Stonehill community in the medium of your choice.
Only proposals from English majors graduating in 2016 will be considered. The funds must be used within one calendar year from the time of graduation. If you have any questions about the Ellis Fellowship, please contact Prof. Jared Green at email@example.com.
Proposals must be submitted by midnight on March 15 by using the online proposal form.
The winning proposal will be chosen by a committee of English professors and the recipient of the fellowship will be announced at the Academic Honors Assembly in April.
