Imagining America (IA) is currently accepting applications for our fellowship programs designed for graduate and undergraduate students from IA member institutions. Read about the two opportunities for students to participate in these vibrant networks.

Please circulate widely to your networks and to anyone who may be interested.
Applications are now open for the following graduate and undergraduate student fellowship programs:

PAGE Fellows Program
(Publicly Active Graduate Education)

We are thrilled to invite graduate students with an interest in public scholarship or artistic practice and activism to apply for a 2019-2020 PAGE Fellowship.

PAGE Fellows participate in a yearlong working group for collaborative art-making, teaching, writing, storytelling and co-creating knowledge within and for community. Awardees receive a $500 honorarium to attend the 2019 PAGE Summit on October 17th and the IA National Gathering from October 18-20 in Albuquerque, NM.

We are artists, scientists, researchers, instigators, cultural leaders, care workers, and community activists. The fellowship offers ongoing professional mentorship and emotional support to fellows, especially toward navigating unjust institutional barriers. While there are no limits to the amazing work we can accomplish together in a fellowship year, we prioritize physical, emotional, and mental well-being and accountability throughout the process.

PAGE Fellows will build capacity in a cohort of publicly-engaged scholars and will join the Imagining America network of activist-scholars, administrators, artists and media makers who are shifting culture toward justice within higher education and society. Eligible  applicants are students from IA member institutions. Learn more about PAGE Fellows Program, here.
