2018-19 Undergraduate Fellowships
The Pembroke Center invites undergraduate students to apply for participation as Undergraduate Student Fellows in the 2018-19 Pembroke Seminar, "What Are (Human) Rights? Imperial Origins, Curatorial Practices and Non-Imperial Ground". Selected students will receive a stipend of $1,000 for two semesters of participation. Undergraduates who will be in their 5th semester or above in the fall, and who have interests related to the upcoming seminar are invited to apply; a limited number will be selected. Proposals are due by 4:00 pm on March 15, 2018.
The Pembroke Seminar is an interdisciplinary research seminar that meets weekly throughout the academic year.

The Pembroke Research Seminar meets on Wednesdays from 10:00 am - 12:30 pm.
