Opportunities for Students
The Center for Arts and Humanities seeks to support any student—undergraduate or graduate—who seeks to pursue introductory or advanced experiences in the arts and humanities and how those disciplines engage and work with the public. In the near future, look for opportunities to meet and network with faculty and to learn how to do work with not only academic but also public meaning.

For graduate students, the center sponsors with the WSU Graduate School’s Publicly Engaged Fellows (PEF) program. Created with the assistant of a National Endowment for the Humanities NextGen grant, the PEF helps students (and faculty) re-imagine doctoral education at a land-grant research university. In particular, it trains students in the mindset and skills necessary to work equitably with community partners, and then offers those students opportunities to develop an independent, funded summer project of engaged scholarship.
The center offers several arts and humanities scholarships through the College of Arts and Sciences each year. The scholarships support full-time undergraduate and graduate students in the arts and humanities disciplines whose interests and activities (such as coursework or extracurricular volunteering) demonstrate a clear commitment to the arts and humanities. There is a preference for applicants with an interdisciplinary focus that spans one or more areas of the arts and humanities. Students should complete the WSU General Scholarship Application to be considered. For more information, please visit CAS Scholarships.
