Olusegun Updated on
National Humanities Center is now accepting applications from scholars from across the humanities and all over the world for its 2022 Residential Fellowships. The deadline for the submission of applications for the National Humanities Center Residential Fellowships is October 6, 2022.
The National Humanities Center welcomes up to forty scholars from the humanities and throughout the world each year.
Fellows are given the freedom to concentrate on their ideas while benefiting from the Center’s superior services throughout their time in residence. Private study, light-filled common rooms, and green gardens are available at the beautiful Archie K. Davis building. In addition, the Center offers great library services, breakfast and lunch in the dining area, and administrative assistance in organising seminars and study groups.
National Humanities Center Residential Fellowships Eligibility
Applicants must have a doctorate or equivalent scholarly credentials.
Mid-career and senior scholars are encouraged to apply. Emerging scholars with a strong record of peer-reviewed work may also apply. The Center does not support the revision of doctoral dissertations.
In addition to all fields of the humanities, the Center accepts applications from scholars in the natural and social sciences, the arts, the professions, and public life who are engaged in humanistic projects.
National Humanities Center Residential Fellowships Benefits
The stipend amounts awarded are individually determined, according to the needs of the Fellow and the Center’s ability to meet them. The Center seeks to provide half salary with the expectation that the Fellow’s home institution covers the remaining salary. Other grants or institutional support that Fellows will receive during their fellowship may also affect the amount of the Center’s stipend.
