Apply for Humane Studies Fellowship (HSF) – Spring 2022. The Humane Studies Fellowship (HSF) is a non-residency, renewable award of up to $15,000 per year to assist students enrolled or planning to enroll in full-time PhD programs. Institute of Humane Studies is currently accepting applications for spring 2022 fellowships.

Humane Studies Fellows not only gain financial aid, but also connect with IHS and the network of scholars working to advance classical liberal ideas in the academy. This includes access to academic advising and invitations to future career development seminars, research workshops, discussion colloquia, and other networking events. Accepted Fellows research a broad range of topics from migration and 18th-century property rights to bioethics and environmental policy. IHS welcomes scholars working in unique and diverse research areas. They are looking for anyone doing exciting classical liberal research in the humanities and social sciences. Apply today.


IHS supports a diverse collection of graduate students across a wide range of academic disciplines within the humanities and social sciences. Larger awards of $6,000 – $15,000 are highly competitive and generally reserved for late-stage graduate students who have demonstrated academic excellence and publication success with highly relevant research that advances the classical liberal tradition.

Applicants are eligible to apply for each term. Please note summer funding is highly competitive. Strong applications clearly articulate a research agenda or plan to use the funds specific to the award term.
