About Institute for Humane Studies at George Mason University – Humane Studies Fellowship

The Humane Studies Fellowship (HSF) is a non-residency, renewable award of up to $15,000 per year to assist students enrolled or planning to enroll in full-time PhD programs. We are currently accepting applications for spring 2022 fellowships.

 

Humane Studies Fellows not only gain financial aid, but also connect with IHS and our network of scholars working to advance classical liberal ideas in the academy. This includes access to academic advising and invitations to future career development seminars, research workshops, discussion colloquia, and other networking events.

 

Accepted Fellows research a broad range of topics from migration and 18th-century property rights to bioethics and environmental policy. IHS welcomes scholars working in unique and diverse research areas. We are looking for anyone doing exciting classical liberal research in the humanities and social sciences. Apply today!

 

A few examples of the research interests of previous Humane Studies Fellowship include (but are not limited to):

 

* The displacement of civil society by the welfare state
* The role of patient autonomy in bioethics
* Impediments to economic growth in developing countries
* The relationship between U.S. presidential politics, fiscal policies, and economic performance

 

Eligibility

 

To be eligible to apply for the Humane Studies Fellowship, you must:

 

* Be enrolled full time in a PhD program at any institution for the 2021-2022 academic year.

 

* Have a research interest that contributes to the advancement of classical liberal scholarship.

 

Previous Humane Studies Fellowship applicants and winners who will be enrolled as full-time PhD students in the 2021-2022 academic year are welcome to apply. Prior participation in IHS programs is not required. The fellowship is open to PhD students at any university – applicants do not need to be enrolled at George Mason University to be eligible. International students are eligible; however, preference is given to applicants who live or study in the United States, Canada, and/or the United Kingdom. Qualifying fields of study include economics, political science, philosophy, law, history, sociology, and similar disciplines in the social sciences and humanities. We generally do not fund students studying the natural sciences, medicine, or engineering.

 

IHS supports a diverse collection of graduate students across a wide range of academic disciplines within the humanities and social sciences. Larger awards of $6,000 – $15,000 are highly competitive and generally reserved for late-stage graduate students who have demonstrated academic excellence and publication success with highly relevant research that advances the classical liberal tradition.

 

Applicants are eligible to apply for each term. Please note summer funding is highly competitive. Strong applications clearly articulate a research agenda or plan to use the funds specific to the award term.
