Announcing New Fellowship between Williams-Mystic and Connecticut College


We are pleased to announce The Williams-Mystic and Connecticut College Study Away and Research Fellowship!

For the first time, the Maritime Studies Program of Williams College and Mystic Seaport is partnering with Connecticut College through the Goodwin-Niering Center, the Study Away office, and CELS to provide a unique study away and research opportunity for undergraduates of any major. One or two Connecticut College students will be selected based on their application and their advisor’s recommendations to join Williams-Mystic’s interdisciplinary ocean studies semester. This scholarly and outdoor adventure includes living within the museum at Mystic Seaport and three substantial research trips: to sea on a tall ship, to the Pacific Northwest or California coast, and to the delta of the Mississippi River. In addition, fellowship students will conduct paid research work toward their area of interest, both during the semester and for a ten-week CELS summer internship.
