Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship of Scholars in the Humanities

The Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship of Scholars in the Humanities is a unique opportunity for the best recent PhD recipients in the humanities to develop as scholars and teachers. Up to four fellowships will be awarded for a two-year term (with the possibility of a third). Fellows teach two courses per year in one of Stanford’s 15 humanities departments, and are expected to participate in the intellectual life of the program, which includes regular meetings with other fellows and faculty to share work in progress and to discuss topics of mutual interest. Fellows will also be affiliated with the Stanford Humanities Center and will have the opportunity to be active in its programs and workshops.

The application for 2016-17 fellowship will open in mid-August. The deadline will be 11:59 PM PT on November 16, 2015.

The Mellon Fellowship provides postdoctoral fellowships in Stanford's fifteen humanities departments. Program admissions focus on selected fields of scholarship in each application year (on a rotating basis).
