The Fredericks * Follett * Roethke Graduate Fellowship in the Arts & Humanities at Saginaw Valley State University in Michigan awards funded residential fellowships each year to support original research or creative work on Marshall Fredericks, Ken Follett, or Theodore Roethke using one of SVSU's three principal archival collections in the humanities. Advanced graduate students in a doctoral or MFA program, or recent graduate degree recipients in art, popular culture, literature or other relevant disciplines in the humanities, are invited to submit proposals for a multi-visit research residency with the goal of public presentation of the findings through a conference paper, published article in a scholarly journal, or other appropriate outlet. Creative projects will also be considered, such as the development during the residency of a series of poems based on Saginaw locations associated with Roethke's life and career to be discussed and analyzed in a public forum.
FFR Graduate Fellows receive a stipend of $5,000, round-trip domestic economy airfare or vehicle mileage reimbursement, accommodations on or near campus, and a meal allowance per working day (Monday through Friday when the University is in regular, official session).
The FFR Graduate Fellow serves as a regular resource and resident scholar for an anticpated 160 hours or service, preferably during the spring or summer months. The residency may be completed either through regularly scheduled days on campus or through consecutive days during a four-week period and includes two-to-three guest lectures in SVSU undergraduate classes.
Proposals will be accepted and reviewed when submitted.
