The National Humanities Center has partnered with the UNCF/Mellon Program to provide an opportunity for UNCF faculty members for a one-semester fellowship at the National Humanities Center.
Within the suite of career enhancement opportunities for UNCF faculty is the Faculty Residency Program. UNCF/Mellon Faculty Fellows who spend a semester at the National Humanities Center will join an energetic, multidisciplinary community of humanities scholars. Each year, forty scholars representing a broad array of the humanities come to the Center to conduct research, write, and think in a serene environment designed to further humanistic inquiry.
As with all the Center’s fellowship recipients, UNCF/Mellon Faculty Fellows will be assigned private studies with 24-hour access to the Center’s facilities, enjoy breakfasts and lunches prepared by the Center’s kitchen staff, and receive the support of the Center’s dedicated librarians. They may also take part in scholarly colloquia, reading groups, and social activities with other leading scholars from around the world.
Tenure-track and tenured humanities professors at the consortium of thirty-seven UNCF institutions and Hampton University are eligible to apply. The deadline to submit a UNCF/Mellon application is January 31, 2022. To learn more about eligibility and the application process and to apply to the program, please visit the program website.
