Stanford University External Faculty Fellowships at the Stanford Humanities Center are intended primarily for individuals currently teaching in or affiliated with an academic institution, but independent scholars may apply. Faculty fellowships are awarded across the spectrum of academic ranks (assistant, associate, and full professor) and a goal of the selection process is to create a diverse community of scholars. Applicants who are members of traditionally under-represented groups are encouraged to apply. There are no citizenship requirements for these fellowships; non-U.S. nationals are welcome to apply. 

Fellowships are for one full academic year, and require the fellow to be in residence during Autumn, Winter, and Spring Quarters (mid-September to mid-June). 

Fellows are expected to attend lunch regularly and to participate in weekly research presentations. Additionally, faculty fellows are required to make an intellectual contribution to the Stanford community, usually by participating in a Research Workshop at the Humanities Center. 

Applicants must have a PhD and be at least three years beyond receipt of the degree by the start of the fellowship term. Eligible areas include, but are not limited to: history, literature, philosophy, classics, archaeology, languages, comparative religion, linguistics, ethics, history and criticism of the arts, and the humanistically oriented social sciences.
