The University of Connecticut Humanities Institute (UCHI) invites applications for 2021–22 residential fellowships.

During this time of global change and uncertainty, UCHI seeks to mobilize the humanities as a revitalizing force for our academic communities, national conversations, and global commitments. With year-long fellowships offering a $50,000 stipend, an office, and all the benefits of a Research I university, UCHI equips scholars to engage in these crucial undertakings and hone their research in a vibrant, interdisciplinary community of fellows. Fellows enjoy the full use of UConn’s research facilities, museums, archives, and special collections, as well as easy access to Hartford, Boston, and New York City. In sum, UCHI fosters a rich intellectual environment for scholars to create, connect, and recommit to the urgency of the humanities.

Fellowships are open to humanities researchers, including professors, independent scholars, writers, and museum and library professionals. Applicants whose research engages with the nature, meaning, or artistic expression of truth—which are the themes of UCHI’s ongoing Henry Luce Foundation-funded Future of Truth project—are encouraged to apply.

Application materials must be received by February 1, 2021.
