Humanities Institute faculty fellowship program
For several years, the Humanities Institute has been working towards the goal of establishing a faculty fellowship program to provide time and resources to USF faculty pursuing compelling scholarly or creative topics. Similar fellowships are offered by all of our aspirational peer institutions and establishing this program at HI is a major milestone.
For the pilot year, we received six outstanding applications—all worthy of funding and all demonstrating the exciting and innovative humanities research being done at USF. To encourage interdisciplinarity, three faculty members apply as a cohort and outline a central research question or topic they want to explore during the year. Each member of the cohort receives instructional release time, space in the HI suite, and other resources. In addition to working on their year-long project, fellows will conduct regular graduate student seminars, and assist with the annual Undergraduate Humanities Conference.
Special thanks to the CAS Dean’s Office, the HI Faculty Advisory Board, and department chairs for their support and input in developing this new program.
