Students who are selected as Haas Scholars are expected to make the senior capstone experience a main academic priority during the fellowship year.  The Scholar's Contract below details the commitments that Haas Scholars must make in order to remain eligible for the program.  Please review it carefully before you apply.

Here are the major items you should be aware of:


New Scholars Reception, mid-April, 2019. 

Haas Scholars Orientation Retreat, May 27-31, 2019.  You will be booked for all day every day (except for a few hours off each afternoon), and you are encouraged to sleep each night at retreat hotel (near campus).

Full time research all summer, 2019 (no jobs or summer courses allowed)

Haas Scholars Fall Seminar, every Friday in Fall 2019, 2-4 pm

Haas Scholars winter conference, Janurary 16-17, 2020

And tasks:

For both semesters, you must sign up for 3+ units supervised by your mentor to carry out your project (this is usually an honors thesis, other times an independent study, and sometimes one semester of each)

You will need to report on your progress and turn in receipts in early fall and late fall, 2019 and the end of the spring, 2020.

You will turn in all remaining receipts (or check to return funds), plus your final product (usually your thesis), by the last day of finals in May, 2020.
