• NEH Fellowships

    19 February 2019

    The National Endowment for the Humanities is now accepting applications to its flagship Fellowship program, which makes awards that support individuals pursuing advanced research of value to humanities scholars, general audiences, or both. Recipients usually produce articles, monographs, books, digital materials, archaeological site reports, translations, editions, or other scholarly resources in the humanities. Projects may be at any stage of development.

    Fellowships cover periods lasting from six to twelve months at a stipend of $5,000 per month. The maximum stipend is $60,000 for a twelve-month period. Applicants should request award periods that suit their schedules and the needs of their projects.

    Applications are due by Wednesday, April 10, 2019, for projects beginning as early as February 1, 2020, and as late as September 1, 2021. More details are available on the NEH Fellowship website and on the NEH webpage maintained by Carleton’s Office of Corporate & Foundation Relations.

    Christopher Tassava in Corporate & Foundation Relations is available to help any prospective applicant prepare an application.

  • The Stellenbosch Institute for Advanced Study (STIAS) in Stellenbosch, South Africa, provides and maintains an independent “creative space for the mind” to advance the cause of science and scholarship across all disciplines. It is global in its reach and local in its African roots, and values original thinking and innovation in this context.

STIAS is currently accepting applications via email for one- and two-semester residencies in 2020 (January to June or July to December). STIAS fellows are expected to be resident at STIAS for the duration of a fellowship, with no academic obligations other than pursuing the proposed research project.

  • Rome Prize

    12 October 2018

    The American Academy in Rome awards the Rome Prize to support innovative and cross-disciplinary work in the arts and humanities. Each year, the prize is awarded to about thirty artists and scholars who represent the highest standard of excellence and who are in the early or middle stages of their careers. Fellowships are awarded in a range of humanities fields.

  • The National Humanities Center invites applications for academic-year or one-semester residential fellowships. Mid-career, senior, and emerging scholars with a strong record of peer-reviewed work from all areas of the humanities are encouraged to apply.

  • The Bush Foundation invites applications to its Fellowship program, which provides individuals with a flexible grant of up to $100,000 to strengthen their leadership skills.

    The Fellowship is an investment in people who have a record of accomplishment and the potential to do even more for their community. The application requires a clear vision for what is possible in the Fellow’s community and what type of personal growth and development the Fellow will need to realize that vision.

    The Fellowship can last anywhere between 12 and 24 months. In that time, the Fellow can use the grant to seek an academic degree or another professional credential, to pursue a personal leadership development plan, or to undertake other leadership-oriented activities. (The grant itself can be used to cover a wide range of costs: living expenses, tuition, conference registration, equipment, travel and childcare.)

    The application deadline for the next round of Bush Fellowships will likely be in September 2018.
