NYC: Scholars in Residence

This 12-week, fully-funded residency program places 2-4 Dietrich School undergraduates in NYC over the summer 2018 to conduct self-directed theatre arts research in the Billy Rose Theatre Division of the New York Public Library (NYPL). Over the summer, residents will write about their research for the NYPL web site and Pitt’s Archives & Special Collections Tumblr blog. At the end of the summer, residents exhibit their own research in the NYPL's Performing Arts Library in Lincoln Center. In the fall term following the residency, undergraduates will register for course credit to continue and finalize their final research projects and present/perform/exhibit/stage their work at a public event with the University of Pittsburgh. Throughout the summer and fall terms, students will have academic support from OUR staff, Faculty Mentors, and Archivists/Librarians who will provide training prior to their trip to New York as well as afterwards to ensure a positive and rewarding learning experience. Explore the Billy Rose Theatre Division.

Applications will be accepted from any Dietrich School undergraduate who:

  • is interested in joining a community of scholars.
  • has a faculty sponsor within the project discipline.
  • is interested in conducting self-directed research.
