Bristol FellowshipCreated for Hamilton College students to "encourage discovery of self and the world, a greater appreciation and understanding of people and culture, and to enable individuals to act on great ideas through independent study projects rather than formal academic pursuit." Projects should be based on strong personal interest and commitment; they should be imaginative and thoughtful; they should be feasible; they should exhibit a spirit of inquisitiveness and a seriousness of purpose. Candidates will not be solely judged on academic record, but rather on the spirit of inquisitiveness and potential.
