Deadline: 6 October 2022
Open to: holders of a doctorate or equivalent scholarly credentials
Benefits: individually determined stipend amounts awarded
Each year, the National Humanities Center welcomes up to forty scholars from across the humanities and all over the world.
During their time in residence, Fellows are given the freedom to work on their projects while benefiting from the exceptional services of the Center.
The stunning Archie K. Davis building offers private studies, light-filled common areas, and verdant grounds.
The Center also provides scholars with exceptional library services, breakfasts, and lunches in the dining area, and administrative support in organizing seminars and study groups.
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.
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.
In addition to the stipend, the Center also pays for round trip travel for the Fellow and any immediate family members joining the Fellow in North Carolina during the fellowship year. The Center does not provide any additional funding for research travel, edited letters or primary source document collections, moving expenses, or living expenses.
