Arts-humanities fellows named
STANFORD -- Fifteen Stanford University students have been awarded
Children in the Arts and Humanities Fellowships to conduct community programs
and work on personal creative projects.
The fellowship program, administered by the Stanford Humanities Center, is
in its third year. It provides stipends to promising students who develop and
implement their programs and projects. The stipends also support a variety of
summer creative projects for elementary to high school youngsters.
Students are encouraged to submit proposals that allow them to divide
their summer time between working with children in the community and
developing their arts. Each is also required to obtain a commitment for
co-sponsorship from a community organization.
