Oregon Humanities Center Fellowship Deadline February 3

The Oregon Humanities Center administers two graduate fellowship programs. The OHC Graduate Dissertation Fellowship, offered in collaboration with the UO Graduate School, provides successful applicants one term free from teaching in order to allow full-time work on the dissertation. The OHC Graduate Research Support Fellowship supports graduate education by providing doctoral students with resources to assist with their doctoral research and the completion of their dissertations. Research projects must be humanistic, but applicants may be enrolled in any department, college, or school. The term humanities is broadly interpreted to include literature; philosophy; history; the study of languages; religion; ethics; the history, theory, and criticism of the arts; and historical or interpretive aspects of the social and natural sciences and the professions. The application deadline for 2014-15 graduate fellowships is February 3, 2014. Application materials can be found at ohc.uoregon.edu/fellowships
