Useful Information for Shuchat Art Fellowship Faculty Mentors

The College of Liberal Arts appreciates the significant work that goes into mentoring student fellowship applications. This information sheet is meant to make explicit the role of faculty mentor of a student Shuchat Art Fellow.

Mentoring Students in the Proposal Process

  • Provide guidance/feedback to student proposer(s) as needed to help them craft a strong project narrative, timeline and budget.
  • Complete the mentor recommendation form

Mentoring Proposals that are Funded

  • Attend an introductory gathering in late spring 2018
  • Meet regularly with mentee(s) during the summer 8-week session to guide their work (generally every other week, sometimes more or less or from a distance as appropriate to the project)

Faculty members may oversee up to two Shuchat Art Fellows. Mentorship participation in this program for the summer comes with a $2,000 stipend for each project overseen.
