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

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 summer 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
