Undergraduate Fellow Application

Fellows will receive five meal vouchers for Peer-to-Professor lunches, and be given the chance to host a fireside discussion.

A Message from Quincy Thomas Stewart, Faculty Chair of Slivka

In an effort to augment the mentoring environment at the weekly Peer-to-Professor (P2P) lunches, the Slivka College staff is creating an “Undergraduate Fellow” position/program. The goal of this program/position is to bring together Slivka upperclassmen—both non-residential and residential—with the current Slivkans and faculty fellows in an informal lunch setting to add a new perspective to the conversations. Our hope is that the Undergraduate Fellows (UFs) will provide Slivkans insight on their experiences with particular internships, co-ops, and other important academic/market activities.

To this end, the Slivka Faculty Chair’s staff will distribute four UF’s to Slivka upperclassmen consisting of five meal vouchers to be used during the Winter quarter of 2016. The UF’s must use these vouchers to attend five P2P lunches during the Winter quarter with an eye toward discussing their experience with others at the lunch. Furthermore, the UF’s will participate in a UF fireside (as a group) during the Winter quarter for a deeper engagement with Slivkans about their unique academic/market experience.

To apply for a UF position for the Winter quarter of 2016, please send me a CV and a cover letter that details your experience that you will be able to discuss in the context of the P2P lunches and the group UF fireside. The deadline for applications to the UF program for the Winter 2016 quarter is November 18, 2015. Please submit your applications to me, Quincy Thomas Stewart (q-stewart@northwestern.edu), by that time to be considered for the program. The Slivka College staff will review the applications and announce the awards prior to December 1st, 2015.

If you have questions about the program, please drop me a line via email or talk to me at P2P.
