ASU faculty members engage in a year of research related to the annual theme.
The Institute for Humanities Research at Arizona State University invites applications for our IHR Fellows program for 2019-2020. The theme will be Borders and Boundaries. Proposals are due by 11:59 p.m. MST on Wednesday, February 13, 2019.
The ASU IHR Fellows program provides funding for tenured or tenure-track faculty, as well as to other faculty eligible for a research release. Fellows may apply as individuals or as a team to engage in a year of research related to the annual theme, to share their research with the academic community, and to produce a strong application for an external grant.
Successful proposals for the Fellows program will outline a rich scholarly project rooted in the humanities that will benefit from interdisciplinary conversations and readings, that has clear and feasible outcomes for the fellowship year, and that has the potential to be funded by outside agencies.
Fellowships provide funds toward one course buyout (in the spring semester) for each faculty member as well as research funds of $2500 per faculty member.
