Resident Fellowships

The Institute for Research in the Humanities holds an annual competition for up to six Resident Fellowships for UW-Madison faculty working on a project of significance for the humanities. Resident Fellows participate in the interdisciplinary life of the Institute and undertake full-time research for one semester. They receive their regular salary and are released from teaching and service during the semester of the fellowship. Letters and Science faculty on the tenure-track or tenured in the humanities, including the humanistic social sciences, are encouraged to apply. Departmental nominations are accepted, but do not necessarily increase the chance of success. Fellows with additional funding (e.g., sabbatical or other grants) are invited to remain in residence at the Institute for the academic year. Full application information and application forms are available on the Institute’s website.
