Stanford Humanities Center External Faculty Fellowships

Online Application System: Applications may be submitted entirely online via our online application system. Access to the online application system will open on our website in August. Applications must be received at the Center by October 15th, 2009.

Applicants must have a PhD and will normally be at least three years beyond receipt of the degree at the start of the fellowship year (i.e., will have received the PhD in or before September 2007 for the 2010-2011 fellowship). Junior fellowships are for scholars who will be at least three and no more than ten years beyond receipt of the Ph.D. by the start of their prospective fellowship year. Senior fellowships are for established scholars who are more than ten years beyond receipt of the PhD. External fellowships are intended primarily for individuals currently teaching or affiliated with an academic institution, but independent scholars may apply. Faculty fellowships are awarded across the spectrum of academic ranks (assistant, associate, and full professor). Scholars who are members of traditionally under-represented groups are encouraged to apply.

The humanities include, but are not limited to, the following fields: history, philosophy, languages, literature, linguistics, archeology, jurisprudence, history and criticism of the arts, ethics, comparative religion, and those aspects of the social sciences employing historical or philosophical approaches. This last category includes social and cultural anthropology, sociology, political theory, international relations, and other subjects concerned with questions of value ...

Fellows are awarded stipends of up to $60,000 and a housing and moving allowance of up to $15,000, dependent upon need. Applicants who require additional support are expected to seek supplementary funding in the form of external grants or sabbatical or other contributions from home institutions.
