I am filling out a job application, which asks to attach a "sample of current scholarship."

What is this?

I am guessing this means something like a published paper, but as a new PhD graduate, does the thesis count?

"Scholarship" is effectively a synonym for "research". Send something like:

  • a published paper

  • a preprint of an unpublished paper

  • your thesis, or one or more chapters from it

Your advisor may have advice as to what would be best.
