National Humanities Center Residential Fellowships
The National Humanities Center offers 40 residential fellowships for advanced study in the humanities during the academic year, September 2013 through May 2014. Applicants must have doctorate or equivalent scholarly credentials. Young scholars as well as senior scholars are encouraged to apply, but they must have a record of publication, and new Ph.D.s should be aware that the Center does not normally support the revision of a doctoral dissertation. In addition to scholars from all fields of the humanities, the Center accepts individuals from the natural and social sciences, the arts, the professions, and public life who are engaged in humanistic projects. The Center is also international and gladly accepts applications from scholars outside the United States. Most of the Center's fellowships are unrestricted. Several, however, are designated for particular areas of research, including a fellowship for a young woman in philosophy as well as fellowships for environmental studies, English literature, art history, Asian Studies, and theology. Fellowships are individually determined, according to the needs of the Fellow and the Center's ability to meet them. The Center seeks to provide at least half salary and covers travel expenses to and from North Carolina for Fellows and dependents.
Application Deadline: October 15
