Stanford Undergraduates

The Humanities Center is pleased to announce the seventh year of awarding Hume Humanities Honors Fellowships. Each year, eight to ten seniors are selected for the Hume Humanities Honors fellowship. Seniors should be in a humanities discipline and writing an honors thesis. Students are nominated by faculty advisors, and selected by a Stanford Humanities Center committee early in the fall quarter.

Hume Humanities Honors fellows receive a stipend of $1,500 for research project materials, have an individual desk in the Humanities Center undergraduate office, and participate in a variety of specially-tailored group activities throughout the year. 

In the stimulating scholarly environment of the Humanities Center, undergraduate fellows benefit from a year-long association as a cohort, as well as with graduate student and faculty fellows in residence. These intensive intellectual interactions are meant to enable the students to deepen their scholarly focus and expose them to advanced and inspiring research in the humanities. 

These fellowships are made possible by gifts from Mr. George H. Hume and Dr. Leslie P. Hume.

The deadline for nominations for the 2019-20 academic year has passed.
