The Graduate Team Discovery Fellowship is a financial award given by the Global Arts + Humanities Discovery Theme in collaboration with the Graduate School to recognize the cross-disciplinary aspirations and academic accomplishments of graduate students in the Division of Arts and Humanities in the College of Arts and Sciences. This program brings together a cohort of graduate students whose projects match with one or more of our Focus Areas and awards EACH student a yearlong fellowship. The fellowship is open to students whose projects engage cross-disciplinary critical and/or creative practices as well as students who seek to foster the development of participatory networks with local Columbus communities. Graduate Team Fellows may be at any phase of their dissertation research or terminal degree project.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A GRADUATE TEAM FELLOW?

In addition to focusing on their own research (as mentored by their department faculty advisor), Graduate Team Fellows convene as a cohort around GAHDT Focus Areas in order to support each other’s evolving research, to develop cross-disciplinary methodologies and to generate a collective, public-facing project (like a podcast or website or conference presentation). In this work, Graduate Team Fellows will be mentored by one of our GAHDT Faculty Fellows with expertise in cross-disciplinary arts and humanities methods and practices.

AWARD CONDITIONS: The GAHDT Graduate Team Discovery Fellowship offers three consecutive semesters (autumn, spring, summer) of tuition and fees and a monthly stipend of $2,150. The award includes travel and research support up to $500. Support also includes payment of general/instructional fees, tuition and any learning/technology fee. Special fees, such as COTA, recreational facility, Student Union and study activity fees are not included. Graduate Team Fellows may not hold any other type of employment or appointment during the time of the fellowship.

ELIGIBILITY

+ Must be a doctoral student or student in a three-year terminal degree program (e.g., MFA) in the Division of Arts and Humanities of the College of Arts and Sciences.

+ Must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.6 for all Ohio State graduate courses.
