Faculty Residential Fellowships
UCHI offers up to eight residential fellowships each academic year. Up to six of these are allocated to junior (tenure-track) and senior faculty at the University, and up to two are awarded to visiting scholars. For all faculty residential fellowships - DEADLINE FOR APPLICATION: JANUARY 15.
Faculty Residential Fellowships are opportunities for individuals to pursue advanced work in the humanities. Applicants may be faculty or staff members of colleges or universities, or independent scholars and writers.
Projects may contribute to scholarly knowledge or to the general public's understanding of the humanities. Recipients might eventually 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.
Faculty Residential Fellowships support projects that can be completed during the tenure of an award or those that are part of a long-term endeavor. Applicants should have held the Ph.D. for four years. Independent scholars and writers must have an advanced record of professional accomplishment.
Faculty Residential Fellowships do not support projects to study teaching methods or theories. Neither do they support surveys of courses and programs or the preparation of institutional curricula.
