Graduate Research Fellowships
The Penn Humanities Forum is deeply grateful to The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for its generous support over 12 years (2003–2015) to promote interdisciplinary research in the humanities for students and faculty. For advanced doctoral students in Penn's School of Arts and Sciences, this fellowship support has been especially important in bringing together those with little opportunity to interact with other students outside their disciplines and departments. Students were able, often for the first time, to present their work in an interdisciplinary seminar and to consider that work within the broader context of a public conference they planned and organized each year.
While the Forum is not accepting graduate fellowship applications at this time, we will keep you updated as we develop new, expanded opportunities for graduate students with the School of Arts & Sciences and our supporters.
