Grant of the Week: Mellon-HBCU Residential Fellowships

Karen Lou | Jul 24, 2019

Every week, Perspectives Daily showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship that has been posted to our free community calendar. This week we are featuring the Mellon-HBCU Residential Fellowships.


The National Humanities Center welcomes fellowship applications from scholars engaged in advanced humanities research at Historically Black Colleges and Universities. The Center is pleased to announce funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to support residential fellowships for four scholars from HBCUs over each of the next three years, beginning with the 2019-20 academic year.


Fellows who are part of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation grant are awarded a $55,000 stipend for either a full academic year fellowship (September to May) or the spring semester (January through May) plus the summer. To ensure an uninterrupted and significant period to pursue research and writing, Fellows opting for a spring semester fellowship will continue in residence at the National Humanities Center for the added month of June and will receive additional summer funding after their residency at the Center ends, for a total stipend of $55,000.

In addition to the stipends, the grant will also award $25,000 to each Fellow's home institution to help defray the cost of hiring teaching replacement faculty. Applicants who are awarded a fellowship and their administrators are contacted in February.

End: October 10, 2019
