Emerging Scholars Program
The emerging scholars program is a collaboration between the Dean of Faculty’s office, the Office of Equity and Inclusion along with funds from the Mellon Foundation. The program provides financial support to departments and programs to bring historically underrepresented and marginalized scholars to Bates College to participate in a variety of academic and student development activities. The emerging scholars program is a collaboration between the offices of the Dean of Faculty and the Vice President of Equity and Inclusion.
The chief goals of the program are: to introduce Bates faculty and undergraduate students to historically underrepresented and marginalized scholars and the fields and areas of study those scholars occupy, to broaden our institutional networks, to catalyze and normalize the inclusion of scholars from historically underrepresented and marginalized backgrounds in the intellectual life of departments and programs, and to help students from historically underrepresented and marginalized backgrounds imagine Bates College and Higher Education as a place they can persist and thrive.
Consideration for emerging scholars program funds will begin in late January 2020.
