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 2016-17, the Center for the Humanities will place six graduate fellows in academic or full-year staff positions at established cultural institutions in the Madison area. Fellows will hold a 50% appointment (20 hours/week), and receive a salary, award stipend, benefits, and tuition remission.
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.
