The Lisska Center for Scholarly Engagement is Denison's campus hub for programs that promote intellectual life on campus. We mentor and support students and alumni applying for nationally-competitive fellowships and scholarships; coordinate the Summer Scholar programs; and serve as a contact point and funding hub for a wide range of academic enrichment programs and activities.
Residency in Gilpatrick House is open to students involved in research, as Summer Scholars, Senior Research Scholars, or participants in another intensive research program.
With housing for only nine students, Gilpatrick House offers a special environment promoting community with classmates who share the enthusiasm of doing individual research across all disciplines. One student is selected as the Gilpatrick Fellow who serves as a head resident and plans events for the residents. This atmosphere is particularly welcoming to students planning to apply for prestigious national and international scholarships and fellowships such as Fulbright, Goldwater, Rhodes, and Truman.
Summer Scholar research students who are accepted to live in Gilpatrick House during the academic year will also be invited to reside there for the summer, thus eliminating the need to participate in summer housing lottery and move to a new residence hall in August.
