Benson Center for the Study of Western Civilization Announces 2nd Annual Summer Institute, June 29 - July 24, 2020
The University of Colorado's Benson Center for the Study of Western Civilization invites applicants to a four-week Summer Institute in Boulder, Colorado. The Institute is open to scholars holding a PhD (or disciplinary equivalent) who are conducting research on some topic that falls within the scope of the Center’s 2020-21 theme, "Community or Disunity?"
Participants will receive a $5000 honorarium, office space and library privileges. The honorarium is intended to cover all travel and business expenses. Participants are expected to be in residence in Boulder for all four weeks of the Institute, and to participate in the daily life of the program, which will include both collaborative seminars and social activities.
Applicants may come from any academic field, but must have a research proposal that relates to the Institute’s theme. Applicants should also demonstrate an interest in contributing to the Center’s mission to foster a diversity of perspectives within the University and to engage with the values of Western civilization.
Applications should include the following materials:
- A cover letter, setting out both the applicant’s interest in the mission of the Center and the research project to be pursued over the four weeks of the Institute;
- A curriculum vitae;
- The names and email addresses of three references; and
- A sample piece of research.
