Graduate Fellowships

Dissertation Fellowships

2018–19 guidelines and application (coming soon)

The Oregon Humanities Center, in collaboration with the UO Graduate School and the College of Arts and Sciences, is pleased to offer the Dissertation Fellowship.

The goal of this fellowship program, modeled after the OHC Faculty Research Fellowship, is to provide the applicant with one term free from teaching in order to allow full-time work on the dissertation. It therefore provides:
• A $5,500 non-service stipend
• A one-term tuition waiver
• Health insurance coverage for the fellowship term
• When space is available, an office at the Oregon Humanities Center during the term of the fellowship

Research projects must be humanistic, but applicants may be enrolled in any department, college, or school. The term humanities is broadly interpreted to include literature; philosophy; history; the study of languages; religion; ethics; the history, theory, and criticism of the arts; and historical or interpretive aspects of the social and natural sciences and the professions.

The purpose of the Graduate Research Support Fellowship program is to stimulate humanities research (see definition below) and support graduate education by providing doctoral students with resources to assist with their doctoral research and the completion of their dissertations.

Graduate Research Support Fellowships provide:
• up to $1,000 in research support during the fellowship year. These funds can be used for travel to an appropriate conference, research library, or archive during the fellowship year, or they may be used to purchase materials needed for the completion of the dissertation; 
• an invitation to all Center Work-in-Progress talks during the year; and 
• when space is available, the use of a Humanities Center office for one term during the fellowship year.

Research projects must be humanistic, but applicants may be enrolled in any department, college, or school. The term humanities is broadly interpreted to include literature; philosophy; history; the study of languages; religion; ethics; the history, theory, and criticism of the arts; and historical or interpretive aspects of the social and natural sciences and the professions.
