The AGHI is now accepting applications from PhD students in the 10 humanities departments in KSAS, as well as Anthropology, Political Theory, and History of Medicine, to become AGHI Graduate Research Fellows.

These are one-semester fellowships, tenable in Spring of 2018. AGHI Graduate Research fellowships will provide full KSAS stipend, along with tuition costs equal to 20% of KSAS resident-student tuition, for the Spring semester; are intended to replace any departmental teaching requirements; and 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 2017-18 academic year. 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.

Please submit a concise (max. 500 words) abstract of the dissertation, including its methods and approaches and its greater significance for the humanities; a statement of work already accomplished and plan for work still to be done; a CV, and a letter of recommendation from your adviser to, with the subject-heading “AGHI Graduate Research Fellowship Application,” by March 15, 2017.

Decisions will be made by a multi-departmental board and will be based on the board’s judgment of the project’s merits as well as the balance and complementarity of the chosen projects. Decisions will be announced by April 1.
