Call for applications: AGHI Graduate Research Fellowship for spring 2024

The Alexander Grass Humanities Institute (AGHI) is accepting applications from PhD students in the 13 humanities departments in KSAS, which include the Anthropology, Political Theory, Sociology, and History of Medicine programs.

This one-semester fellowship:

  • Is tenable in the spring 2024 semester
  • Provides a full KSAS stipend, along with tuition costs equal to 20% of KSAS resident-student tuition, for the spring 2024 semester
  • Is intended to replace any departmental teaching requirements
  • Will come with access to AGHI space for work and meetings

AGHI fellows will be in the final stages of their dissertations with a high likelihood of completing their dissertations by the end of the academic year of the fellowship. Fellows will be free to devote their time to writing with few distractions and will only be expected to attend AGHI-sponsored events and meet as a group twice monthly with a faculty mentor to workshop their dissertations. The fellowship will run from Jan. 16 to May 31.

Apply on the AGHI Graduate Research Fellowship webpage.

Complete the application via the Interfolio link by Feb. 28, 2023. Decisions will be made by the end of March or early April.
