UC Graduate Fellows in Humanities awards

This program has been discontinued.  Part of the system-wide University of California Humanities Network, this program was designed to support advanced doctoral students in the final stages of completing their dissertations, and to encourage the collaboration, interdisciplinary dialogue, and innovation that are fundamental to research in the humanities in the University of California. Along with Faculty Research Fellows, Graduate Fellows are members of the UC Society of Fellows in the Humanities, sponsored by the UC Humanities Network.

During the fellowship year, UC Graduate Fellows in the Humanities are affiliated with the Interdisciplinary Humanities Center, or, if appropriate, with a campus-based center, multi-campus research group or collaborative research project. Through the IHC or another center, the fellows will be expected to give a public presentation during their fellowship year. Fellows will be invited to participate in an annual meeting of UC Faculty Research Fellows and UC Graduate Fellows, and to submit a brief essay reporting on the fellowship year for inclusion in an e-publication disseminated by the UC Humanities Research Institute.
