Opportunities for Students

Graduate Colloquium Committee Series

CALL FOR GRADUATE PAPERS!

The Graduate Colloquium Committee is soliciting papers for presentation at our monthly colloquium series. We are looking for original research in a topic within the fields of History, American Studies, and Native American Studies by graduate students. Each month, two selected papers will be presented, with twenty minutes for the presentation and ten minutes for questions.
Second year M.A. students who shall remain anonymous (Suzy, Clint, Alex, Tyler, Ryan and the NAS folks who we don’t know) are highly encouraged to present their research, as this will be a time to receive constructive feedback from your peers and from faculty. Additionally, Ph.D. candidates should come ready and willing to subject their work to a rigorous interrogation or continue the tradition of rigorous interrogation.


If you are interested, please submit an abstract of roughly 250 words to the committee at Jeffrey.bartos@msu.montana.edu or ryan.sparks2@msu.montana.edu. Please join us in an atmosphere of scholarly exchange and fun! Dates for the colloquium will be announced.

Deadline for submissions: September 27, 2013.

McNair Scholars Program

The McNair Scholars Program at MSU serves the needs of 25 undergraduate students annually who are either first-generation/low-income or minorities traditionally underrepresented (e.g. Native American, Latino, Alaskan Native, and African American). Eligible scholars are selected who have demonstrated strong academic potential and are committed to attending graduate school and pursuing an advanced degree.  A particular focus of the MSU McNair program is providing research/project opportunities and financial support for summer projects for each student who is paired with a faculty mentor.
