The Jefferson Junior Fellows Program

The Jefferson Junior Fellows Program provides intellectual and social opportunities for honors students who are pursuing the Certificate Program in Core Texts and Ideas. Junior Fellows have the opportunity to take part in lunches with faculty meetings, receptions with visiting scholars, coffee hours, and other events planned by the fellows themselves. In addition, a number of book prizes of $250-500 will be given at the end of each semester to Junior Fellows who earn the highest grade point averages in that semester.


To qualify for the program, students must have completed at least one year at UT or another college or university, must have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher, and must be enrolled in at least one course that qualifies for the Program in Core Texts and Ideas. A list of these courses may be found under qualifying courses. Preference will be given to students who are on track to graduate with the CTI Certificate. Students currently serving as Jefferson Center Peer Mentors are automatically Junior Fellows and do not need to apply.

Application Information

Applications are accepted at the beginning of each semester and are due at the end of the second week of classes. For more information, please contact Lorraine Pangle, co-director of the Jefferson Center,
