Opportunity Cover Image - Stanford Humanities Center's Fellowships for External Faculty 2020, USA

Humanities Center offers approximately twenty-five residential fellowships for the academic year

External fellowships are intended primarily for individuals currently teaching in or affiliated with an academic institution, but independent scholars may apply. Faculty fellowships are awarded across the spectrum of academic ranks (assistant, associate, and full professor) and a goal of the selection process is to create a diverse community of scholars. Applicants who are members of traditionally under-represented groups are encouraged to apply. There are no citizenship requirements for these fellowships; non-U.S. nationals are welcome to apply. Awards are made from an applicant pool of approximately 350.


  • Research projects must be in the humanities; creative arts projects are not eligible. The Center is open to projects employing information technology in humanities research.
  • All applicants must have a PhD and be at least three years beyond receipt of the degree at the start of the fellowship year. Junior fellowships are for scholars who will be at least three and no more than ten years beyond receipt of the PhD by the start of the fellowship year. Senior fellowships are for established scholars who are more than ten years beyond receipt of the PhD.
  • External faculty fellowships are offered once only. Former external faculty fellows are not eligible to reapply.


Fellowships are for one full academic year, and require the fellow to be in residence during Autumn, Winter, and Spring Quarters (mid-September to mid-June). We do not consider applications for different amounts of time.

Since we are a residential center, where intellectual life depends on collegial interaction, external fellows are required to live within a ten-mile radius of Stanford University. Fellows are also expected to attend lunch regularly and to participate in weekly research presentations.

During the year, faculty fellows are required to make an intellectual contribution to the Stanford community, usually by participating in a Geballe Research Workshop at the Humanities Center. Precise details regarding the intellectual contribution will be determined with the Center's Associate Director after fellowships are awarded.


Fellows are awarded stipends of up to $70,000 and a housing and moving allowance of up to $30,000. Applicants who require additional support are expected to seek supplementary funding in the form of external grants or sabbatical or other contributions from home institutions.

The Center is unable to provide or finance medical insurance. Fellows are required to make individual arrangements for reasonable coverage during their fellowship year.
