The Lee D. Baker Scholars Program
The Lee D. Baker Scholars Program, sponsored by Humanities Writ Large and the Thompson Writing Program, offers a select group of outstanding undergraduates the opportunity to extend and deepen their Writing 101 work in the form of an enhanced, intensively mentored research and writing project, especially in the Humanities and Interpretive Social Sciences. The Baker Scholars Program provides a rising sophomore with funding for summer research followed by a fall small-group independent study (Writing 293) for the Scholars during which they draft and revise a substantive written project based on their research. Scholars’ writing will be published in a spring special online issue of Deliberations, the TWP’s journal of undergraduate student writing.

The Lee D. Baker Scholars Program is named in honor of Dr. Lee D. Baker, Professor of Cultural Anthropology and Dean of Academic Affairs and Associate Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education at Duke University, for his ongoing support for the cultivation of robust and meaningful undergraduate research and writing. The Lee D. Baker Scholars Program is made possible by a Humanities Writ Large grant.
