The Alpine Fellowship supports students who are dedicated to exploring cross-disciplinary questions of the contemporary age. The ideal students "seek to explore the connections across and between humanistic fields of study, build bridges across fields of study in the humanities, and creatively synthesize the arts, literature, philosophy, and other humanistic fields of inquiry."
- Recipients receive a fellowship award of up to $6,000 toward a trip to the 2023 Alpine Fellowship Symposium in Sweden from August 10-13.
The annual event includes prominent guests from around the world, representing the fields of theater, poetry, film, music, philosophy and the visual arts. In recent years the novelist Ian McEwan, the art historian Andrew Graham-Dixon and the filmmaker Luc Jacquet have been among the guests. The theme for the 2023 Consortium is "Flourishing."
