UIC Institute for the Humanities




The UIC Institute for the Humanities is pleased to continue the Resident Graduate Scholar program in 2019-2020. 

During the 2019-2020 academic year the Institute will offer Resident Graduate Scholar opportunities for advanced graduate students in the humanities.

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

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

·  Significant humanities focus and methodology

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


Deadline EXTENDED: Tuesday, April 9, 2019 

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.”
