Hugh Hawkins Research Fellowships are awarded annually to Johns Hopkins undergraduate or graduate students from any school who want to conduct research into an aspect of the rich history of Johns Hopkins University.
Fellowship recipients are notified in the spring and conduct their research over the summer. A fellowship award of $3,500 is given to each recipient, intended to be used as a cost-of-living stipend to support awardees who will remain residents in Baltimore for a minimum of eight weeks during the summer (May-August) of their research fellowship.
Special consideration will be given to projects exploring the history of diversity at Johns Hopkins or that propose a final product rooted in the digital humanities. The Hugh Hawkins Fellowships will enhance the undergraduate and graduate research experience by providing opportunities for original research in historical collections and for sharing research with the public.
Each fellowship recipient will work closely with a faculty mentor and an archivist mentor during the fellowship.
Fellowship recipients' work will be preserved in the Ferdinand Hamburger University Archives of the Sheridan Libraries, creating a rich, continually growing, and publicly available body of original scholarship that will serve as a valuable resource for generations to come.
