Clarkson University has received a $50,000 grant from the William G. Pomeroy Foundation to support students majoring in history who pursue service-learning projects to gain professional experience in the field.
Over the next five years, Clarkson’s Department of Humanities and Social Sciences (DHSS) is expected to provide up to 20 undergraduate students with $2,500 fellowships to help cover cost-of-living expenses while working on their projects at history-related organizations, such as museums and historical societies. The selected students will be named Pomeroy Fellows.
Four Pomeroy Fellows will be named each academic year beginning in 2023 through 2028. Casper and DHSS colleagues will provide mentorship to students throughout their service-projects with partner organizations.
DHSS, which is part of Clarkson’s School of Arts and Sciences, offers a variety of majors and minors, including a bachelor’s degree in history. Students may also minor in history.
