Humanities Institute


Past Faculty Research Fellowships

Through the Faculty Research Fellowship the DHI aims at helping faculty make progress on a major research or creative project.  The purpose of the fellowship is to further the research/creative work of the individual recipients and to enable faculty within the humanities and humanistic social sciences to meet and work with colleagues in other disciplines and departments.  Projects need not be “interdisciplinary” by definition, and awards are based on the scholarly merit of the individual applications.  The fellowship provides recipients with a single quarter research leave.
