Fellowships

The Humanities Center supports different categories of Fellowships:

Co-Teaching Fellowship

In collaboration with the Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences, the Humanities Center sponsors a Co-Teaching Fellowship. Faculty from different departments at the University of Pittsburgh can apply to develop a new co-taught undergraduate course. Co-Teaching Fellows receive course releases to do this, participate in the intellectual life of the Center, and lead a colloquium.

Faculty Fellowship

The Humanities Center hosts University of Pittsburgh faculty to take part in Center activities as an Internal Faculty Fellow. These fellows lead a colloquium in the Humanities Center and we enlist two faculty members, preferably coming from different fields of study, to deliver responses during the session--these respondents may come from Pitt or from other local institutions.

Graduate Fellowship

The Humanities Center also offers summer research fellowships for graduate students working at the University of Pittsburgh. These Graduate Fellows then participate in the intellectual life of the Center in the following year.They lead a colloquium in the Humanities Center, and we work with each fellow to develop a format for sharing their work in the most generative way.

Undergraduate Fellowship

The Humanities Center supports undergraduate research with a number of summer fellowships to support humanities research experiences. That summer research is supported by a Spring proseminar in which Undergraduate Fellows learn how to frame, develop, and execute a humanities research project. It is also supported by a Fall proseminar that helps fellows produce a research output that fits their projects and ambitions.

Visiting Fellowship

The Humanities Center invites scholars from around the world to take part in short-term visits to the Humanities Center. These Visiting Short-term Fellows typically present one public lecture, one round-table colloquium discussion, and one student-focused event. Additionally, each spring term, the week after commencement, we bring one scholar to campus to host our week long Faculty Seminar.
