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 a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher and 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.
Applications are accepted at the beginning of each semester and are due at the end of the second week of classes. The application consists in a short form, available in the Jefferson Center office, and a grade report. Applications from previous semesters’ fellows are welcome.
