National Humanities Center - Residential Fellowships
Each year, the National Humanities Center welcomes up to forty scholars from across the humanities and all over the world.
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-career 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.
In addition to 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.
