Virginia Foundation for the Humanities Postdoctoral Residential Fellowships

Application Deadline:  December 1, 2016

The Virginia Foundation for the Humanities (VFH) offers fellowships to scholars and writers in the humanities. We seek applications that are intellectually stimulating, imaginative, and accessible to the public. There are no restrictions on topic, and applications are invited from across the broad spectrum of the humanities.

The maximum fellowship stipend is $15,000 per semester. Fellowships are awarded for one semester or a full academic year. If you are selected to be a fellow you will have a private, sunny office a few miles from the University of Virginia. VFH offices are also home to a dozen humanities programs serving VFH’s mission to connect people and ideas to explore the human experience. If selected as a fellow you will have the opportunity to meet our friendly staff and engage in our other programming, possibly as a participant or moderator at our annual Virginia Festival of the Book, or as a guest on VFH’s With Good Reason radio program. Fellows also have visiting faculty status at the University of Virginia.

Fellowships are open to faculty members in the humanities, independent scholars, and others working on projects in the humanities. Applicants need not have advanced degrees, but VFH generally does not support work toward a degree. Postdoctoral applicants are strongly encouraged to apply for projects other than dissertation revisions.
