May 10, 2019 | Sophia Ramos

The Institute for the Arts and Humanities is pleased to announce its 2019-2020 cohort of Faculty Fellows.  The Faculty Fellowship Program provides on-campus leaves for faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences to work on interdisciplinary scholarly projects. Fellows also gather weekly around a meal to discuss their projects and professional development goals.

The deadline for 2020-2021 fellowships will be in September 2019.

Faculty Fellows typically demonstrate a strong track record in working with faculty and students across disciplines, engage in scholarship that makes significant contributions to their respective fields, and demonstrate the potential to effectively communicate the results of their research to a broad audience.
