The Marcus Bach Fellowships for Graduate Students in the Humanities are awarded by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences to support the completion of an MFA project or doctoral dissertation. The fellowship’s goal is to foster intercultural communication and/or the understanding of diverse philosophies and religious perspectives, and projects in this area are the most appropriate proposals.
The Marcus Bach Fellowships are made possible by a bequest from the estate of Dr. Marcus Bach. Dr. Bach received a doctorate from The University of Iowa in 1942 in Speech and Dramatic Arts (now the Department of Communication Studies and the Department of Theatre Arts). Awardees must also show an awareness of the specific ideas and research of Dr. Bach. (For more information on Dr. Bach, please see the Brigham Young University website devoted to him.)
Bach Fellowships may be awarded for two semesters ($16,244 stipend plus $1,756 tuition scholarship) or for one semester ($8,122 plus $878 tuition scholarship). Each year, up to four Bach Fellowships will be awarded.
Eligible graduate students apply through their departments. The DEO may forward to the Dean up to three student applications. Applications for the 2014-2015 fellowships will be accepted in fall 2013.
Application materials must include:
Awardees are chosen by a committee of the CLAS Office of the Dean.
