Tluszcz First-Year Research Associateship in History

The Tluszcz First-Year Research Associateship in History is available due to the generosity of Mark Tluszcz. He graduated from Eckerd College with a major in history and went on to develop an impressive career as an entrepreneur and investor. He is the co-founder and CEO of Mangrove Capital Partners, and serves as the Chairperson of Wix IPO. His company was an early investor of Skype and other world changing companies. He honors Elie Wiesel with his gift.

Applicants must be planning to major or minor in the field of history. Those chosen for the program will have exciting opportunities to work closely with faculty members on various research projects during their first year at Eckerd. They will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship, and join an outstanding group of history research associates. This fall they will take a designated history course together and conduct a research project, and in the spring they will enroll in a history course of their choice, which also will involve research.

Online submission due no later than February 1, 2019.
