The Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship of Scholars in the Humanities (formerly the Stanford Humanities Fellows Program) is an interdisciplinary program offering post-doctoral fellowships in humanities disciplines. The program brings outstanding younger scholars (within three years of the PhD) to Stanford on two-year fellowships. Fellows enjoy substantial time to pursue research, teach two courses per year in an affiliated Stanford Department, and participate in active program of scholarly exchanges with other Fellows, Stanford faculty, and outside visitors.
The program also aims to foster Fellows’ careers through close engagement with established scholars, including Stanford faculty associated with the program, internal and visiting fellows at the Stanford Humanities Center, and other major figures in the humanities, whom the program brings to campus for public lectures and small group sessions with the Fellows. In addition, Fellows gather throughout the year, to present their research to one another, and for professional development workshops devoted to pedagogy, publishing, and mentoring.
Each Fellow is affiliated with some Stanford Humanities department, which arranges teaching and office space. This complements the Fellowship’s cross-disciplinary community by promoting Fellows’ full engagement in the activities of their home disciplines here at Stanford. Finally, beginning with academic year 2009-10, Mellon Fellows have been full participants in the intellectual life of the Stanford Humanities Center, a residential research community which brings outstanding external faculty to Stanford for research leaves, as well as providing competitive internal fellowships to Stanford faculty and graduate students.
