The Stipe Society is designed to foster original, independent scholarship and creative endeavors in the arts among Emory College students and to encourage communication between undergraduate students and faculty members engaged in scholarly research. Twenty currently enrolled students are selected as associate scholars each year on the basis of proven ability in a field of scholarship and recommendations by teachers in that field. Election is for one year only, and students must apply for re-election. Those Stipe Scholars who are not already receiving faculty/staff courtesy scholarships or other scholarships that include full tuition receive an honorarium of one thousand dollars; for those receiving need-based financial aid, this honorarium replaces the college grant portion of their aid up to the amount of one thousand dollars.
