The Humane Studies Fellowship is a non-residency, renewable award of up to $15,000 per year to assist students enrolled or planning to enroll in full-time PhD programs. The Institute for Humane Studies will also offer one $30,000 fellowship this year, but this award is contingent on the needs and caliber of the applicant pool. 

Humane Studies Fellows not only gain financial aid, but also connect with IHS and their network of scholars working to advance classical liberal ideas in the academy. This includes access to academic advising and invitations to career development seminars, research workshops, discussion colloquia, and other networking events.

Qualifying fields of study include: economics, political science, philosophy, law, history, sociology, and similar disciplines in the social sciences and humanities.

  • Be enrolled full time in a PhD program at any institution for the 2020-2021 academic year;

  • Have a research interest that contributes to the advancement of classical liberal scholarship.
