Residential Fellowships 2015-2016

The National Humanities Center seeks applicants for academic-year or one-semester residencies. Fellowship applicants must have a PhD  or equivalent scholarly credentials. Emerging scholars as well as senior scholars are encouraged to apply, but they must have a strong record, normally a book or other major peer-reviewed project. The Center does not normally support the revision of a doctoral dissertation. In addition to scholars from all fields of the humanities, the Center invites individuals from the natural and social sciences, the arts, the professions, and public life who are engaged in humanistic projects to apply. Applicants from all parts of the world are welcome; U.S. citizenship is not a requirement.

Location and Facilities. Located in the progressive Triangle region of North Carolina, the Center affords access to the rich cultural and intellectual communities supported by the area’s many research institutes and universities. The Center’s award-winning building in the Research Triangle Park fosters individual research and the exchange of ideas. Each Fellow has a private study and 24-hour access to conference rooms, a central commons for dining, lounges, reading areas, a reference library, and workroom. The noted library service delivers books and research materials;  IT support and copy editing services are also provided.

Areas of Special Interest. Most of the Center’s fellowships are unrestricted. Several, however, are designated for particular areas of research. These include a fellowship for a young woman in philosophy and fellowships for environmental studies, English literature, art history and visual studies, Asian Studies, and theology.

Stipends. Fellowships are individually determined, according to the needs of the Fellow and the Center’s ability to meet them. The Center typically seeks to provide at least half salary and also covers travel expenses to and from North Carolina for Fellows and dependents. Independent scholars and scholars who do not anticipate sabbatical pay during their leaves are encouraged to apply: it is the Center’s aim to provide all fellowship recipients with stipends that meet their full financial need, even in cases where sabbatical pay or other outside funding is not available.

Deadline and Application Procedures. The deadline for applications is October 15, 2014. Instructions and a link to the Center’s online application system may be found at:  Application for 2015-16 Fellowships<https://dnbweb1.blackbaud.com/OPXREPHIL/Link.asp?link=672390>
