One-Year Humanities Center Fellowship 2020-2021

In addition to multi-year fellowships, BYU’s Humanities Center also sponsors two one-year fellowships. Unlike the multi-year fellowships, these one-year fellowships will be awarded by application rather than appointment. The fellowship period will begin in the fall semester of 2020. Fellowships will come with a salary supplement of $2,500, a research stipend of an additional $2,500, and release from two courses (pending approval by the recipient’s department chair. Applicants should secure that approval before submitting an application). Additional money may also be available for wages and supplies.

Eligibility: These fellowships are available to all full-time, post-CFS faculty in BYU’s College of Humanities. Priority will be granted to faculty who plan to use the fellowship to aid the completion of a substantive research project (for example, a book, an article, or a series of articles). These fellowships are non-renewable and will not be awarded to college faculty who have held a center fellowship in the previous three years.

Application: One-year fellowships are competitive. Interested faculty will be asked to complete an application consisting of a current vita and a prospectus of no more than seven double-spaced pages. This prospectus should outline the project, make a case for its significance, explain how the fellowship will be used, and give a time frame for the project’s completion.

Deadline: Applications must be received by 5:00 on March 23rd. (Note: we will extend the listed deadline from March 16th.) You may send them to me via email attachment. A committee comprised of Humanities Center fellows from different disciplines will then review and rank the applications. I will not rank applications but will play an advisory role throughout the process and am happy to provide feedback on prospective projects, so please feel free to come to me with questions or concerns. Note that the dean must approve all committee decisions. Applicants will be informed of these decisions within a few weeks of the deadline.
