The National Humanities Center welcomes fellowship applications from scholars engaged in advanced humanities research regardless of citizenship or national origin. Each year, several scholars from countries other than the United States come to the Center as part of the cohort of Fellows and contribute to the rich intellectual and diverse environment of the fellowship program.
International applicants must meet all the eligibility requirements as discussed on the competition homepage and should consult our Frequently Asked Questions for additional information.
Fellowship recipients who come from overseas are provided with guidance in securing housing, arranging local transportation, and finding schools to assist in their transition. The NHC reimburses round trip travel expenses to the Center for the Fellow and those family members who will live with the Fellow during their time in North Carolina.
The stipend amounts awarded are individually determined, according to the needs of the Fellow and the Center’s ability to meet them. The Center seeks to provide half salary up to $65,000 with the expectation that the Fellow’s home institution covers the remaining salary.
