Institute for Humane Studies at George Mason University calls application for the Humane Studies Fellowship (HSF) 2021. Humane Studies Fellows not only gain financial aid, but also connect with IHS and our 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.


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. HSF funding is available for the 2021-2022 academic year and summer 2021. Applicants can request funding for the academic year and/or summer within the application.


The fellowship is open to PhD students at any university – applicants do not need to be enrolled at George Mason University to be eligible. International students are eligible; however, preference is given to applicants who live or study in the United States, Canada, and/or the United Kingdom. Qualifying fields of study include economics, political science, philosophy, law, history, sociology, and similar disciplines in the social sciences and humanities.
