The University of Connecticut Humanities Institute invites applications for residential fellowships. Fellowships offers a stipend, office, and all the benefits of a Research I university. Just as important, we offer community, space, and time for scholars to write, argue, engage, and create.
Year-long fellowships are open to humanities professors, independent scholars, writers, museum and library professionals. Take advantage of the research facilities, archives and special collections, and museums with ideal proximity to Hartford, Boston, and New York City.
Application materials must be received by February 1, 2019.
The program will pay a modest stipend, travel, meals, and lodging costs for all participants. Faculty participants will make three commitments beyond their attendance. They will agree to: a) plan and initiate an engaged project in the following academic year (for which they will be eligible to apply to the institute for a $5,000 start-up award); b) commit to using the summer’s institute as a basis for initiating curricular or institutional change; and c) submit a written report before the following year’s institute.
More information about applications will be available in mid-January.
