The Center offers two categories of funding to currently enrolled Dartmouth students.

  1. Student Research Fellowships offer up to $1,000 for faculty-supervised research or creative projects in the humanities.
  2. Student Professional Development Fellowships offer up to $1,000 for participation in unpaid internships or attendance at scholarly meetings.  Preference is given to students who have not received prior internship funding from the Leslie Center.

    PLEASE NOTE: Student Professional Development Fellowships for unpaid internships in Fall 2020 will be awarded only to support internships in which the work will be performed remotely.

Proposals are held to a rigorous standard and students are urged to send the proposal to their advisor for review prior to submission. The proposal should include the following:

  • a detailed description of the project or activity for which the funding is being requested,
  • a budget of anticipated expenses, and
  • a letter of support from a member of the faculty.

Proposals are submitted by email to
