C3’s second cohort of undergraduate fellows, selected from a competitive applicant group from LADO schools, begins its summer adventure this week at Columbia University and UC Berkeley.
The cohort is made up of 11 talented students from five different colleges. This year’s undergraduate fellows include:
At UC-Berkeley: Maya Doig-Acuña, Middlebury College; Alyssa Flores, Smith College; Amira Lundy-Harris, Amherst College; and Victoria Yan, Smith College
At Columbia University: Jeremy Glover, Bates College; Ahmad Greene-Hayes, Williams College; Brittanie Lewis, Amherst College; Syeda Malliha, Amherst College; Cheswayo Mphanza, Middlebury College; Andrea Penman-Lomeli, Middlebury College; and Madelene Santizo, Bates College
During the eight-week program, each undergraduate fellow will provide research assistance to a faculty member, while simultaneously developing his or her own research under the guidance of that mentor and a graduate student mentor.
Fellows will also participate in weekly seminars, workshops, and group events, get insider knowledge and preparation for the graduate school application process, and take a GRE preparation class.

As our first cohort of nine postdoctoral fellows from Columbia University and UC Berkeley finishes its first year on campus, C3 is pleased to announce nine additional fellows from those institutions for the second cohort, who will begin in the fall of 2015.
Connecticut College, Middlebury College and Williams College each will host three fellows for the two-year period from fall 2015 through spring 2017. The new fellows will join those from the first cohort who are already active in their campus communities.
The 2015-2017 postdoctoral fellows include:
Connecticut College: Lindsay Crawford, Philosophy; Sookyoung Lee, English; Ryan Phillips, Government & International Relations
Middlebury College: Alexsia Chan, Political Science; Abhijeet Paul, Comparative Literature; Trinh Tran, Sociology

During their fellowships, the postdoctoral fellows will gain experience teaching and researching in a liberal arts college environment, supported by senior faculty mentors and others in their cohort. They will also engage with underrepresented undergraduate students on the topics of considering and preparing for graduate education.
The 2015 C3 Summit will take place on November 13 and 14 at Bates College in Lewiston, Maine. More details to come!
