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 provide a single semester of support, ($8,122 plus tuition scholarship for 2 s.h.). 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 2015-2016 fellowships are due in the CLAS Dean's Office by Friday, December 5, 2014.
Application materials must include:
Awardees are selected in consultation with the Graduate Education Policy Committee.
