Applicants sought for Institute for the Humanities fellowships


The Institute for the Humanities is accepting fellowship applications for the 2014-15 academic year from U-M tenured and tenure-track faculty and graduate students.

Faculty fellows are released from their usual teaching and service duties to pursue their research while continuing to receive their normal salary and benefits. They take up residence at the institute for the full academic year, participate in the weekly Fellows Seminar, and fulfill a service-to-undergraduates requirement..

The application deadline for faculty fellowships is Dec. 18.

Graduate student fellowships are for U-M doctoral students who have attained candidacy. Each fellow has furnished office space and a personal computer at the institute’s quarters in the South Thayer Building. They receive a stipend of $2,928 per month for ten months, beginning in either July or September, according to the individual fellow’s preference. The institute pays each fellow’s candidacy tuition and fees for the fall and winter terms and GradCare health insurance for the fellowship period.

The application deadline for graduate student fellowships is Jan. 10.

In addition to the regular graduate student fellowships, graduate students working on projects that correspond to some aspect of “Early Modern Conversions: Religions, Cultures, Cognitive Ecologies” are invited to apply for the EMC graduate fellowship.
