All students at DePaul are welcome to join in our public events and are encouraged to participate in STRC's intellectual community.
The STRC also offers a two types of fellowships for students majoring or minoring in the College of LAS who are interested in doing independent research about the histories and cultures of people of color: the STRC Graduate Research Fellowship (SGRF) and the STRC Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF). Students Fellows will benefit from focused academic mentoring, networking with peers and faculty within the STRC, and the chance to learn more about how the humanities can help build a more just and equitable society.
The STRC Undergraduate Fellowship will provide six undergraduate students with a stipend and free tuition to attend a 5-week Summer Session I course, co-taught by two LAS faculty, which will introduce them to basic research methodologies in the interdisciplinary humanities.
The STRC will award four, six-month long Graduate Research Fellowships to MA students in the College of LAS who wish to propose a humanities conference paper related to the histories, legacies and cultures of people of color, to be presented at the Annual STRC Symposium in October.
