Our new fellowship program focuses on providing graduate students in the humanities with professional experience outside of academia. The Public Humanities Fellows are part of Engaging the Humanities, a multiyear project generously supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation that will create opportunities for UW-Madison graduate students and faculty to broaden the impact of their research through workshops, seminars, programs, and visiting scholars, in addition to the fellowships.
In 2017-18, the Center for the Humanities will five public humanities fellowships to UW-Madison graduate students. Fellows will receive an award stipend and eligibility for health benefits. They will be paired with a partner organization for a nine-month residency.
Partner organizations provide Fellows the opportunity to undertake significant work on innovative programs and ensure that they receive appropriate mentoring. Learn more about the community organizations hosting Fellows.
