University of Connecticut Fellowships

Visiting humanities fellows receive a stipend of $50,000, faculty library privileges, an office in the University of Connecticut Humanities Institute (UCHI) suite, and assistance in locating housing. They are expected to participate in institute activities, including biweekly teas, colloquia, and related scholarly events. Fellows will also offer a public lecture on their research during the course of the fellowship year. Applicants must have held the PhD for four years. Independent scholars and writers must have an advanced record of professional accomplishment. Tenure normally covers an uninterrupted period of from nine to ten whole months. Fellows are required to be in residence for the academic year. Ordinarily, fellowships run from late August (fellows may begin tenure on 15 August) through May. Fellowship recipients will not be allowed to defer a UCHI fellowship. Finally, visiting humanities fellows are expected to acknowledge the University of Connecticut Humanities Institute in publications resulting from work supported by the institute.
