Secure financial support to offset the cost of graduate school as you develop research and work toward a career in academia.

The IHS Humane Studies Fellowship offers tiered grant support for graduate students and postdocs looking to build their academic careers and who want to spend more time focusing on publishing. These awards provide access to other IHS opportunities including mentorship, job market support, in-person and online events, and more.

This fellowship program comprises three tiers of support, outlined below.

Conference Accelerator Grants are designed for master’s and PhD students who haven’t advanced to candidacy. These grants provide $2,000 to support the work of developing a paper into a conference presentation.

Publication Accelerator Grants provide $5,000 to support students and postdocs with an established publishing record who commit to submitting an article to a well-regarded journal within the next six months.

Graduate Sabbatical Grants provide up to $15,000 to graduate students and postdocs to buy out teaching responsibilities for a semester. These grants are highly competitive and can be renewed.


Application Dates and Deadlines


Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis.

Fellows are free to use the funds to further their research as they see fit, including summer course buyouts, purchasing data sets, funding research travel, and more. Once you become a Fellow, IHS becomes a partner and a champion for your academic career. The Humane Studies Fellowship connects you with a community of other scholars dedicated to advancing the classical liberal tradition through civil discourse and research. Fellowship recipients may also receive opportunities for individual academic advising, mentoring, networking programs, and other career-advancing resources.


Information about the Institute for Humane Studies

The Institute for Humane Studies partners with professors to promote the teaching and research of liberty and to advance higher education’s core purpose of intellectual discovery and human progress.

Our vision is to ensure higher education becomes a place where classical liberal ideas are regularly taught, discussed, challenged, and developed, and where free speech, intellectual diversity, and open inquiry flourish.
