The University of Pittsburgh Humanities Center is pleased to offer an undergraduate fellowship program in the Humanities. The goal of this fellowship is (a) to support humanities research by undergraduates at Pitt, (b) to connect them with the multidisciplinary networks of the Humanities Center, and (c) to assist them in securing further fellowship or grant support for the research questions they wish to pursue.
The fellowship program has three core components: a three-credit seminar in spring in which students receive an introduction to humanities research methods and develop a humanities research project, a research experience in summer supported by a $5000 stipend, and a second three-credit seminar in fall in which fellows craft a research outcome. Each seminar will be led by one of the Humanities Center Co-Directors, Carla Nappi and David Marshall. The program will also connect all fellows with a mentor who has experience in the relevant field of inquiry.
The application cycle for 2022 has ended. We will announce when applications reopen for the next cycle.
