The University of Connecticut Humanities Institute invites applications for residential fellowships. Fellowships offer a stipend, office space, and all the benefits of a Research I university.
UConn’s Humanities Fellowships are opportunities for individuals to pursue advanced work in 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. These fellowships do not support projects to study teaching methods or theories, surveys of courses and programs, or the preparation of institutional curricula.
Visiting Humanities Fellows receive a stipend of $45,000, faculty library privileges, an office in the UCHI suite, and assistance in locating housing. They are expected to participate in Institute activities including bi-weekly teas, colloquia, and related scholarly events. Visiting Humanities Fellows will also offer a public lecture on their research during the course of the fellowship year. Applicants must have held the Ph.D. for four years. Independent scholars and writers must have an advanced record of professional accomplishment. Tenure normally covers an uninterrupted period of from nine to ten whole months. Fellows are required to be in residence for the academic year. Ordinarily, fellowships run from late August (fellows may begin tenure August 15) through May. Fellowship recipients will not be allowed to defer a UCHI fellowship.
