Last year, The Humanities Institute teamed up with our campus partners the Institute for Social Transformation and the Arts Research Institute to join the Imagining America (IA) consortium, which brings together scholars, artists, designers, humanists, and organizers to imagine, study, and enact a more just and liberatory ‘America’ and world.
This year, we are excited to announce two student fellowships that are open to UC Santa Cruz students because of our consortium membership. Students interested in public scholarship, cultural organizing, and artistic practice should check out these opportunities:
- The IA/Joy of Giving Something (JGS) Fellows Program provides an opportunity for undergraduate students who work with photography and/or digital media to participate in a year-long learning exchange that includes tuition support, project support, and opportunities for professional development. More information is available on the IA/JGS website. Applications are due on Friday, June 5, 2023.
- The Publicly Active Graduate Education (PAGE) Fellows Program invites graduate students to participate in a yearlong working group in support of collaborative art-making, teaching, writing, storytelling, and co-creating knowledge with and within community. UC Santa Cruz’s own Antonia (Ant) Lorenzo, MFA – Environmental Art and Social Practices, is currently serving as a 2022-2023 PAGE Fellow. More information on the program is available on the PAGE website. Applications are due on Friday, July 30, 2023.
We are very excited to be a part of the IA consortium and look forward to sharing more opportunities in the future!
