Borgeson Scholar Program

The Borgeson Scholar program funds an art and art history faculty-student research pair each summer.

The research team will present their work at summer research luncheons and, in the case of artistic projects, in a venue in the Holland area or on campus.

The Borgeson Scholar program is for full-time faculty working with a student majoring in art or art history. (Senior students are ineligible, as student recipients are required to present their artistic work or research findings during the summer luncheon.)

For more information about the Borgeson Scholar program, contact the Department of Art and Art History.

Previous Faculty Student Research Projects

2017 Faculty Student Research Project - Dr. Anne Heath

Welcome to the Abbey of La-Trinité de Vendôme and the Cult of the Holy Tear Scalar project. This digital book is a companion to a forthcoming article on the visual and performance culture at the Benedictine abbey of La-Trinité in Vendôme, France. Whereas the print article will present, in a traditional format, an argument about the display of the abbey's most precious relic, the Holy Tear of Christ, this Scalar project invites readers to explore the visual, aural and kinesthetic evidence on which the article is based.

Students: Jonathan Bading, Emily Lindbloom
