Fellowships

Each year, the Penn Humanities Forum provides fellowships for Penn students, Penn and regional faculty, and postdoctoral scholars interested in conducting research related to the Forum's theme. As part of their research, all fellows participate in the Forum's rich program of interdisciplinary seminars (biweekly for students, weekly for faculty and postdoctoral scholars), as well as cultural events and conferences.

Twelve fellowships are available each year: nine $1500 awards, two $1750 awards, and one $2000 award for full-time Penn undergraduate students wishing to conduct independent research in the humanities outside their academic coursework.
