Open to untenured junior scholars holding a PhD (no more than eight years out of doctorate, with degree between 12/2010 and 12/2018). Research proposals from all humanistic disciplines and allied areas (e.g., anthropology, history of science) are eligible, except for educational curriculum-building and the performing arts (scholars of performing arts are eligible). Fellows teach one undergraduate course during the year in addition to conducting their research and must be in residence during fellowship year: August 1–May 31. Stipend: $56,225 plus single-coverage health insurance and a $3000 research fund.
Applications are accepted via secure online webform only. Please do NOT email your application, c.v., or questions about whether proposed topic is viable. The committee cannot comment on the appropriateness of proposals in advance, and those submissions and questions will not be considered. A careful reading of the topic description and the application form itself generally answers most questions. Please also note that if you will defend your graduate thesis any time after December 2018, you are NOT eligible to apply, and no exceptions will be considered.
