National Humanities Center Fellowship at University of Guelph in Canada 2022/2023
Applications are now being accepted for the National Humanities Center Fellowship. This is a wonderful opportunity for scholars, regardless of citizenship or nationality, to engage in advanced humanities research. Each year, a number of scholars from outside the United States visit the Center as fellows, contributing to the rich intellectual and diverse environment of the fellowship program.
The NHC will reimburse travel expenses to and from the Center for the Fellow and any family members who will live with the Fellow while the Fellow is in North Carolina. The amount is based on the needs of the fellow.
The amount of reimbursement will be determined independently based on the needs of the fellow and the center’s ability to respond. It is expected that the Center will cover half of the salary up to $65,000, with the rest to be covered by the fellow’s home institution.
