The Institute offers up to four external fellowships to humanities faculty from other campuses in the UW-System with release time from teaching and service for 1-2 semesters. Funding comes from a combination of sources: the home institution, UW-System grant fund allocations to the home institution, and UW-Madison's contribution of about $5,000 per fellow to each home institution. System fellows are invited to present their work at an Institute seminar, schedule permitting, and are expected to attend the weekly Institute seminars. Fellows are provided with an Institute office (space permitting), support services, and access to all university facilities. Fellows with additional funding are invited to remain in residence at the Institute for the academic year and may extend their appointments through the summer.
Applications are due on March 1.
