Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Graduate Fellowships

The Mellon Foundation has made available two fellowships for graduate students to become Fellows of the Society for the Humanities at Cornell University during the 2011/2012 academic year. Graduate Fellows will not teach courses. Graduate Fellows will be invited to all events at the Society for the Humanities.

The Fellowship includes a Graduate School tuition fellowship, a $24,000 stipend, and health insurance. The two Graduate Fellows will share an office at the A.D. White House during the academic year.

Cornell University graduate students in the humanities who are working on topics related to the year`s theme are invited to apply. Awards are restricted to those students who will have completed all requirements for the degree other than the dissertation and who will be no more than six years into the program at the time the Fellowship begins.
