Application Deadline: April 30, 2020

In response to the global health crisis, the Institute for Humane Studies is accepting a second round of applications for summer Humane Studies Fellowships for currently enrolled graduate students whose 2020 summer plans may have changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please note per correspondence with the Institute: the awards for this very special round of funding will be up to $5000.

There are specific requirements for this summer award. Students must be enrolled full time in a PhD program at any institution for the 2020-2021 academic year, and must either present a paper at an academic conference, or have a paper ready for submission to a peer-reviewed journal. Presentation at a future graduate student conference or an IHS Research Workshop is, according to the Institute’s site, acceptable. International students are eligible; however, preference is given to applicants who live or study in the United States, Canada, and/or the United Kingdom.

Accepted Fellows research a broad range of topics from migration and 18th-century property rights to bioethics and environmental policy. IHS welcomes scholars working in unique and diverse research areas. Qualifying fields of study include economics, political science, philosophy, law, history, sociology, and similar disciplines in the social sciences and humanities.The Institute of Humane Studies generally does not fund students studying the natural sciences, medicine, or engineering.
