The Graduate Center Announces New Five-Year Humanities Fellowships

In an initiative to promote innovation in doctoral education, the Graduate Center, City University of New York, will award up to eight new Humanities Fellowships to students entering in Fall 2014. This highly competitive award is designed to assist students in completing their doctorates in five years. Those who do so will be offered, upon graduation, a two-year postdoctoral fellowship to develop further their professional credentials.

During the first five years, Humanities Fellows will receive an annual stipend of $30,000 plus full tuition and subsidized health insurance. Service will be minimal in years one, two and five; in years three and four fellows will teach one course a semester at one of the CUNY colleges. In addition to carrying out their course work and research, fellows will receive intense mentoring and professional training, and will benefit intellectually from the Graduate Center's interdisciplinary culture.
