Resources for Students in Humanities & the Arts

City College Fellowships Program

The City College Fellowships Program is an umbrella program administering two undergraduate fellowships: The City College Fellowship (CCFELL) and the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship (MMUF).  It brings together approximately 10 Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellows and 25 City College Fellows into a single, highly diverse and vibrant community of outstanding students who share a common interest in research and common aspirations to earn a Ph.D.

The Kaye Scholars Program

The City College Kaye Scholars Program is made possible through a generous gift from the H. Austin and Florence R.S. Kaye Foundation. It is the goal of the foundation to "assist young people in the pursuit of new frontiers in the humanities, in the arts or in philosophy and thus strengthen the intellectual and productive base of our nation."

The Sydney and Helen Jacoff Scholarship

Thanks to the great generosity of CCNY alumnus Sydney Jacoff, the Division of Humanities and the Arts will award four $10,000 scholarships to graduating students pursuing master's or doctoral degrees in the Humanities and Arts.

CCNY / Stanford Summer Research Program in the Humanities

The Division of Humanities and Arts just completed its second exciting summer research program for CCNY students. The CCNY-Stanford Summer Program is designed for students considering graduate school in one of the Humanities disciplines.  The program has been renewed for the summer of 2015.

Ten City College Humanities and Arts students will spend eight weeks on the beautiful campus of Stanford University in Palo Alto, California. Stanford will match each CCNY student with a Stanford faculty member who will mentor the student's research project. Students will participate in a weekly seminar on the graduate application process and about research in the Humanities. A free Graduate Record Exam (GRE) preparation course will be provided for those interested.
