The College of Arts & Sciences 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 2022
  • 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)
  • Attend monthly meetings over the summer to support mentee progress; develop group critiques; and further the development of the fellow community
  • Attend summer, fall, and spring public presentation by student mentee
  • Complete payment paperwork as requested


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.
