Students enrolled in the majors of the New Collegiate Division engage in original, faculty mentored research in their final years of study. This allows them to synthesize knowledge and approaches from broad fields of study in project of their own design. Students in the Fundamentals and Law, Letters, and Society programs may apply for summer research support from the Charles M. Gray Research Fellowship fund, which is administered through a competitive application process by the New Collegiate Division.
Charles Montgomery Gray was a distinguished legal historian, a winner of the Llewellyn John and Harriet Manchester Quantrell Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching, and a professor in the Department of History. The Charles M. Gray Research Fellowship was created to honor his memory and to encourage in a new generation of students his devotion to learning and to thoughtful research.
