The Hartwell Scholars

The Shattuck Hartwell Endowed Fund at the Center for Literature and Medicine was established in March 2010 upon receipt of a gift from the estate of Dr. Shattuck Hartwell and gifts made in his memory by his many friends. It is the decision of the Center Director and faculty to establish the Shattuck Hartwell Scholars Program at Hiram College.

The Center Director, upon consultation with the biomedical humanities faculty, will select the Hartwell Scholars based on written application submitted by interested sophomores, juniors and senior students who evidence a sincere interest in the field of biomedical humanities. Hartwell Scholars may assist with such projects as: designing the year's programs of visitors including the Margaret Clark Morgan Lecture; assisting faculty with research projects; assisting Prof. Michael Blackie, editor of the Literature and Medicine Series of books published by the Kent State University Press; working with the faculty to design the annual summer seminar; and, other duties as assigned by the Center Director. Hartwell Scholars may also have an opportunity to attend professional meetings and to represent the Center and Hiram College at professional meetings and events.

A Hartwell Scholar will receive a stipend of no less than $500 per semester.

Current students can apply to be a Hartwell Scholar by filling out the application and returning it to Brittany Jackson in Mahan House or by sending it as an attachment to .
