Institute for the Humanities Resident Scholar 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

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

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.”
