Public Humanities Fellows
Humanities Washington’s Public Humanities Fellows program aims to bring innovative public humanities programming to underserved communities around the state.
The public humanities is a vibrant field that shares the humanities outside of academic circles, but there are too few opportunities for hands-on training and professional development. The Public Humanities Fellows program aims to change that by offering a stipend and support to early-career humanists based in Washington (including graduate students, non-profit professionals, untenured professors, culture bearers, and other humanities experts) who are seeking to develop their program management and public humanities skills. This is the first paid public humanities fellowship of its kind in Washington State, either inside or outside of academia.
Fellows receive a stipend of $5000 and up to $3500 to fund the public humanities project, as well as professional development opportunities, technical assistance and mentorship from public humanities professionals, and regular meetings with a cohort of other fellows. Humanists from communities who are underrepresented in the humanities are especially encouraged to apply.
The application for the 2023-2024 Public Humanities Fellowship has closed.
