ASU faculty members engage in a year of research related to the annual theme.
The IHR Fellows program provides funding for either individual tenured or tenure-track faculty at ASU or research teams to engage in a year of research related to the annual theme, share their research with the academic community (via lectures, a conference, or symposium), and produce a strong application for a large external grant.
In the 2018-19 academic year, IHR Fellows will be conducting research under the theme of "Urban and Rural." Fellows’ projects may focus on the urban, the rural, or the relationship between the two, and may approach the theme from a variety of disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives in the humanities.
Information about applying for the 2019-2020 IHR Fellowships will be available in the spring of 2019.
