The new IHR Fellows program advances the scholarly writing and research of humanities faculty. The program includes registration for the National Council for Faculty Development and Diversity (NCFDD) Faculty Success Program, which provides faculty with the skills needed to increase both research and writing productivity while maintaining a healthy work-life balance. Additionally, the program assists faculty in grant writing and writing for a broad public.

The program has the following strategic goals:

  1. Foster writing habits and public writing;

  2. Foster the growth of interdisciplinary cohorts of ASU humanities scholars;

  3. Ensure that fellows are incorporated into the ASU humanities research pipeline;

  4. Ensure that fellows have the time and resources needed to succeed in their career and professional goals while maintaining a healthy work-life balance.

The fellowship will run through the 2021-22 academic year. Fellowships provide funds toward one course buyout (in the fall semester) for each faculty member, enrollment in the National Council for Faculty Development and Diversity (NCFDD) Faculty Success Program, as well as research funds of $1,000 per faculty member.

The new program does not have an annual theme.
