Should I specify which of the schools where I would like to be a Fellow?
Application is to the Program, not to a specific hosting campus. Applications are reviewed by a committee composed of faculty members from each of the liberal arts colleges in the consortium (Amherst, Hampshire, Mount Holyoke and Smith). This committee selects Fellows, matching them to hosting institutions and departments based on several factors, including the fields and special interests of the candidate, the availability of mentors on the campuses, campus needs, and prospects for position openings in particular fields at particular campuses. In any case, the Five College office works to connect Fellows with resources and faculty colleagues in their field from across the five campuses, regardless of the campus hosting them.
