Research fellowships at University of Connecticut Humanities Institute

The University of Connecticut Humanities Institute offers up to two residential fellowships each year to individuals interested in pursuing advanced work in the humanities. Applicants may be faculty or staff members of colleges or universities, or independent scholars and writers, and must have obtained a PhD degree at least four years prior to application. The application deadline is Friday 15 January 2016.

Projects may contribute to scholarly knowledge or to the general public’s understanding of the humanities. Recipients might eventually produce scholarly articles, a monograph on a specialized subject, a book on a broad topic, an archaeological site report, a translation, an edition, or other scholarly tools.

Residential Fellowships support projects that can be completed during the tenure of an award or those that are part of a long-term endeavor. Fellows receive a stipend of $40,000, faculty library privileges, an office in the UCHI suite, and assistance in locating housing. They are expected to participate in Institute activities such as informal lunches and colloquia, and more formal events.

Tenure normally covers an uninterrupted period of from nine to ten whole months. Fellows are required to be in residence for the academic year (August-May).
