National Humanities Center Fellowship in 2024

Filed in Scholarships by on February 27, 2024

The National Humanities Center welcomes fellowship applications from scholars engaged in advanced humanities research, regardless of citizenship or national origin, for the fully-funded National Humanities Center Fellowship 2024/2025 scholarship.

Each year, several scholars from countries other than the United States come to the Center, in North Carolina, as part of the cohort of Fellows and contribute to the rich intellectual and diverse environment of the fellowship program.

During their time in residence, Fellows are given the freedom to work on their projects while benefiting from the exceptional services of the Center. The stunning Archie K. Davis building offers private studies, light-filled common areas, and verdant grounds.

The Center also provides scholars with exceptional library services, breakfasts, and lunches in the dining area, and administrative support in organizing seminars and study groups.

Fellowship Eligibility Requirements

Applicants must have a doctorate or equivalent scholarly credentials. Mid-careers and senior scholars are encouraged to apply.

Emerging scholars with a strong record of peer-reviewed work may also apply. The Center does not support the revision of doctoral dissertations.

Besides scholars from all fields of the humanities, the Center accepts individuals from the natural and social sciences, the arts, the professions, and public life who are engaged in humanistic projects.

National Humanities Center Fellowship Prize

The stipend amounts for Fellows are individually determined according to the needs of the scholars and the Center’s ability to meet them. The Center’s endowment, private foundation grants, contributions from alumni and friends, and the National Endowment for the Humanities support fellowships.

The Center seeks to provide half salary up to $65,000 expecting the Fellow’s home institution to cover the remaining salary.
