Student Opportunities at the Gould Center

The Gould Center is committed to involving students in the humanistic conversation at CMC through the following opportunities, including our Open Study Hours, held from Sunday to Thursday, 8 – 11pm at the Center in Lower Kravis.

New for ’19-’20: The Humanities Labs

Looking for a chance to pursue independent research in the humanities in a collaborative setting? The Gould Center’s Humanities Labs offer students a funded opportunity for hands-on experience in humanities research in a team-based format and in close mentorship with a faculty member.  These year-long labs engage students in creative, project-based problem solving related to some of the most central humanistic issues facing us today on both a personal and global scale.  Research findings will be presented in both traditional and creative formats, from academic papers to op/eds, short stories, films, websites, and podcasts. Open to CMC students of all class years, with preference given to humanities majors or students with demonstrated interest in the humanities. Selected students will receive a $2000 research stipend plus up to $250 for project-related expenses. Workload per week will vary, but is expected to average approximately six hours per week.

Student Advisory Board

The Advisory Board is an excellent opportunity to get involved with the work of the Center outside of the realm of research and fellowships.

The call for applications for the Student Advisory Board is issued at the start of the academic year.  See attached flyer for more information.

Application for the 2019-2020 Advisory Board is available here. Applications close at 5pm on September 13th 2019.

In summer 2019, we also offered a sponsored internship at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC.


REsearch and Fellowships

The Gould Center offers a number of fellowships designed to engage students in rigorous independent and collaborative research in the humanities. Descriptions of these opportunities, as well as current research assistants and fellows, can be found here.


Student Managerships

The Gould Center is also managed by a number of students, who assist with day-to-day functions of the Center, supervise the Center’s open study hours, and provide input into programming and the decision-making processes of the Center. Find out more about our current student managers here.
