The UConn Humanities Institute invites applications for residential fellowships. Fellowships offer a stipend, office space, and all the benefits of a Research I university. Fellows are required to be in residence for the academic year.
We invite and welcome fellowship applications from scholars in all disciplines and encourage applications to articulate clearly the project’s value to the humanities. Projects may contribute to scholarly knowledge or to the general public’s understanding of the humanities. Recipients are expected to 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.
All applicants possessing a Ph.D. must have held the doctorate for at least four years prior to the start date of the fellowship year or possess a record of professional accomplishment. Applicants need not have advanced degrees to be eligible to apply for Visiting Humanities Scholar fellowships. University or college teachers, independent scholars or writers, or museum or library professionals are all eligible to apply for UCHI Visiting Scholar residential fellowships, regardless of nationality.
Applicants whose research advances the field of Digital Humanities and Media Studies are encouraged to apply.
