UIC Institute for the Humanities




The UIC Institute for the Humanities is pleased to continue the Resident Graduate Fellow program in 2017-2018. 

During the 2017-2018 academic year the Institute will offer Resident Fellow opportunities for advanced graduate students in the humanities.

The Institute for the Humanities provides Resident Fellows with office space and administrative support. As Resident Fellows students will be invited to participate fully in the fellows’ lunch seminars and social events.

Institute for the Humanities Resident Fellow status is intended for students in the writing stage of the dissertation process. Applicants must be full-time humanities graduate students in good academic standing.
Criteria for application review:

·  strength and clarity of the project

·  significant humanities focus and methodology

·  likelihood that a Resident Graduate Fellowship will significantly move the project towards completion


Deadline: March 31, 2017 

In response to questions about the appropriateness of particular projects for fellowships, the Institute has adopted the broad definition used by the National Endowment for the Humanities: “the term humanities includes, but is not limited to, the study of the following disciplines: history; philosophy; languages; linguistics; literature; archaeology; jurisprudence; the history, theory, and criticism of the arts; ethics; comparative religion; and those aspects of the social sciences that employ historical or philosophical approaches.”
