National Humanities Center Residential Fellowships

NHCEssayPageLogoThe National Humanities Center, located in the Research Triangle area of North Carolina, is taking applications for academic-year length residential fellowships for advanced study in the humanities. Applications are due October 15, 2014 at midnight EDT.

The  Center offers 40 fellowships. Stipends are individually determined, according to the needs of the Fellow and the Center’s ability to meet them. The Center seeks to provide at least half salary and also covers travel expenses to and from North Carolina for Fellows and dependents. Most of the Center’s fellowships are unrestricted. Several, however, are designated for particular areas of research. These include a fellowship for a young woman in philosophy and fellowships for environmental studies, English literature, art history, Asian Studies, and theology.
