College House Music Fellows

Share your love of music with your House!  We’re seeking applications for College House Undergraduate Music Fellowships.  All College House residents with ideas for creative performance-based projects are eligible to apply for this one-semester (Spring 2023) fellowship, which awards one semester of one-hour weekly private lessons with an instrument or vocal instructor, or a cash award of $500. Music Fellows will be expected to plan and execute a performance-based music event in their College House; we welcome proposals representing any musical repertoire, style, genre, including the innovative juxtaposition, overlap, or fusion of different music-making traditions. The ideal candidate should be highly practiced in his/her instrument, dedicated to artistic expression through performance, and interested in the arts leadership, management and community-building that can surround it. Eligible students must reside on campus in a College House and may be required to audition. Applications are being accepted until 10/28.

Reach-a-Peer Helpline (RAPLine)

 RAPLine is a student-run peer support helpline. We have a 24/7 textline and a nightly phone line that provides anonymous and confidential support for Penn students.

Truman Scholarship

Penn juniors and second-year students are invited to attend in-person events sponsored by Penn’s Center for Undergraduate Research and Fellowships (CURF) to learn about the Truman Scholarship.

Recipients may use the funds for a graduate program in fields such as Public Administration, Public Health, Social Work, Education, Public Policy, International Affairs, Law, or related areas. Applicants (who must be US citizens) apply for the Truman Scholarship in the fall of their junior year by Penn’s internal deadline of November 14, 2022 at 4:00 pm. Contact Dr. Angie Estévez for more information.
