The NeMLA Graduate Fellows Program provides graduate students unique opportunities to obtain practical experience in the working of a large academic convention and non-profit organization, to establish professional connections with scholars across the Northeast, and to gain insight into one of the most important forms of knowledge production and dissemination in the humanities. Additional interdisciplinary mentorship opportunities are available through the Women’s and Gender Studies Mentorship Program, pairing senior faculty mentors with doctoral students.
The NeMLA Graduate Student Caucus provides resources to NeMLA graduate student members to help navigate graduate school towards successful completion of the degree and to prepare for future careers. At the annual convention, the Caucus organizes multiple sessions for social engagement and professional development, such as the Meet and Greet and the CV Clinic. Graduate students are encouraged to run for open elected positions in the Caucus, including as Representative to the NeMLA Board, for additional mentorship and professionalization opportunities.
NeMLA also sponsors several membership awards and fellowships to promote new scholars in modern languages. The Graduate Student Caucus sponsors an Essay Award to recognize quality research presented at the annual convention by graduate students, as well as Travel Awards to decrease costs to attend the convention. The NeMLA Summer Fellowship Program supports the research of NeMLA members, especially graduate students, with up to $1,500 to defray the cost of research travel.
In recent years, most PhD candidates who are on the academic job market have signed up for Interfolio to assemble their dossier of letters of recommendation, transcripts and CV. This requires a paid subscription. Please allow your professors at least one month to write your letter of recommendation.
