2020–2021 Harry Ransom Center Research Fellowships in the Humanities

September 3, 2019

The Harry Ransom Center invites applications for its 2020–2021 research fellowships. 

The Ransom Center will award 10 dissertation fellowships and up to 50 postdoctoral fellowships for projects that require substantial on-site use of its collections. The collections support research in all areas of the humanities, including literature, photography, film, art, the performing arts, music, and cultural history. For information about how the Center might support your research project, contact us: https://www.hrc.utexas.edu/contact/.

The deadline for applications, which must be submitted through the Center’s website, is November 11, 2019, 5 p.m. CST. All applicants, with the exception of those applying for dissertation fellowships, must have a Ph.D. or be independent scholars with a substantial record of achievement. 

The fellowships range from one to three months, with stipends of $3,500 per month. Travel stipends and dissertation fellowships provide stipends of $2,000. For all fellowship categories, an additional, one-time $500 stipend will be provided to individuals who are a citizen or resident of a country other than the U.S. to contribute to the costs associated with the J-1 visa and/or international travel to Austin. Fellowship residencies may be scheduled between June 1, 2020, and August 31, 2021. During the fellowship, scholars will work on-site at the Ransom Center in Austin, Texas.

Fellows will become part of a distinguished group of alumni. Since the fellowship program's inauguration in 1990, the Ransom Center has supported the research of more than 1,000 scholars from around the world.
