Event Details:

*Lunch Provided*

The Chappell Lougee Scholarship provides funding for full-time immersive projects in the humanities, creative arts, and qualitative social sciences during the summer after your sophomore year.

Students have used the Chappell Lougee Scholarship to write a script, design costumes for a play, translate Greek literature, take photographs in Norway, collect oral histories of immigrants, make a film, track the resurgence of local farm movements, examine being black in Paris, choreograph a dance installation, study the history of radio in India, investigate homelessness in the Bay Area, write a graphic novel about Katrina-displaced Vietnamese in Texas, and much more!

Sophomores* of all majors are eligible to apply, so long as the project itself is in the field of the humanities, creative arts, or qualitative social sciences. Some students use the Chappell Lougee as preparation for a future honors thesis, while others seize the opportunity to step outside the bounds of their major. Recipients become members of a scholarly mentoring community. This includes special events, preparing for a capstone project or honors, fellowships and graduate school advising.

For the purposes of the Chappell Lougee, “sophomore” means that you are enrolled in your 3rd, 4th, or 5th full-time quarter at Stanford at the time of application (Dec 1st deadline). If you are a transfer student, you are eligible if you are enrolled in your 1st or 2nd full-time quarter at Stanford by the time of application, AND you have transferred in no more than 60 units, not including AP credit.
