There're just a few days left before we stop accepting applications for our HDW Fellows program, our academic-year program for involving undergraduates in the work of the HDW. If you're an undergraduate, I encourage you to check it out. The "application" is minimal: we're just looking to see what interests you in the program so we can determine where best to place you. (Also, very importantly, I'll need the openings in your schedule).
The program takes a fairly different shape from our summer workshop because it's got to exist in the context of the school year. In the summer, we meet for 20 hours a week for 6 six weeks; in the academic year, we meet for just 5 hours a week, each week of the semester. There are trade-offs for each, to be sure -- meeting 4 hours a day, you can gather speed quickly; but it's also nice to have the duration of a semester to settle in to a project -- & we're only in our second semester doing the program, but we're starting to feel like we've got a handle on how to make it productive for the students working & learning, & the faculty leading.
Anyway, it's a great opportunity for undergrads to dig into live academic activity; when I was an undergrad, I would've eaten up something like this.
