The Fellowship Program at the Humanities Center
With the support of the UT Chancellor’s Office, the Office of Research and Engagement, our affiliated arts and humanities departments, and the College of Arts and Sciences, the UT Humanities Center supports the creation of groundbreaking humanities research through our fellowship programs. Learn more and apply below.
We offer faculty and graduate-student research fellowships for members of the UT departments of English, History, Philosophy, Modern Foreign Languages and Literatures, Classics, Religious Studies, Music, Theatre, and Art.* Currently we offer six faculty and four graduate-student full-year residencies and also offer full-year residencies to the Marco Institute’s Haslam Dissertation fellow and to UT faculty who have won national humanities fellowships such as the ACLS or NEH fellowships.
In 2017, UT humanities faculty ranked #1 in the nation for numbers of NEH summer stipends and 4th among US public universities for NEH fellowships. The UT Humanities Fellowship Program contributes to this research productivity directly by requiring application to national award competitions as part of its fellowship application process.
Application links and fellowship details are located with the accordion boxes above.
* If your department faculty’s research addresses key humanities issues and you wish the department to become a supporter of the UTHC and participate in this fellowship program, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“The humanities are the main course of life, the essential core of meaning in the world, where our values and our best selves are defined.”
