Edgren Scholars Program

Named for Bethel’s founder, John Alexis Edgren, this program encourages student-faculty research collaboration during the summer break. Student partners receive a $3,000 stipend. Previous Edgren Scholars from our department include Fletcher Warren '15 and Professor of History Chris Gehrz (researching and writing a digital history of Bethel during times of war) and Zach Haala '22 and Associate Professor of History Charlie Goldberg (applying artificial intelligence and machine learning to historical research in the Bethel Digital Library).
