History and Politics Seminar, circa 1887. Ferdinand Hamburger University Archives.

Ever learn something amazing about Johns Hopkins University and thought, “Wow, I’d really like to know the story behind that!”? Well, now’s your chance! Apply for a Hugh Hawkins Research Fellowship for the Study of Hopkins History and spend 8 weeks this summer digging deep into an historical research topic relating to Hopkins. A faculty mentor can help you refine your topic and serve as a sounding board, while your archivist mentor will help you explore the rich archival collections that document the history of our university and hospital system.

Hugh Hawkins Fellowships are open to both undergraduate and graduate students from any school or division of Hopkins. So whether your major is ChemBE or Classical Guitar, if you have a great idea for a research topic, we want to hear it!
