The Primary Texts Certificate program will award two $1,000 Swogger Scholarships this semester.
This scholarship has been established in honor of Dr. Glenn and Mrs. Claire Swogger whose Redbud Foundation is a major supporter of K-State’s Primary Texts Certificate. The Swoggers’ commitment to primary texts education at K-State has made possible the program’s core course “DAS 300: Primary Texts Core Course” and many other benefits.
To apply for this scholarship a student must be enrolled in the Primary Texts Certificate program. Students who obtain the scholarship will either 1) plan to enroll in a class at home or abroad, including in-person and online classes at K-State and elsewhere, in which they will be studying primary texts, or 2) develop a written work they have already undertaken for potential presentation or publication under the supervision of Dr. Johnson. The revision should entail a significant use of primary texts (Students who do not have a paper already composed can still apply by submitting a proposal for a paper they would like to write),
Students seeking the option 1 should show that they are eligible to take the course or other educational experience and are preferably already enrolled. For option 2, students should briefly describe the paper or other work they wish to develop in a cover letter. They should include a proposed deadline for completing any written work, and any ideas they have for publication/presentation, including submitting to K-State’s Live Ideas undergraduate journal.
All applicants should submit a cover letter explaining their purpose, an unofficial academic transcript, and a resume.
If the scholarship involves a writing project, subsequent development of written work will take place under the guidance of the program director within the confines of one semester. Receiving academic credit for this work is an option. Scholarship papers can be subsequently used to fulfill the capstone requirement for the program. Students seeking a scholarship are encouraged contact Dr. Johnson before applying if they have any questions. Email all materials to: firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com>.
Application Deadline: Submit all materials by Friday, September 9, 2022 by emailing Dr. Johnson at the above address.
