THI Research Fellowships provide faculty in the Humanities Division with one course replacement in order to pursue their research. Each fellowship recipient is also awarded $1000 to be used for research expenses, which can include the hiring of a GSR, travel, and the purchase of research related equipment. Proposals must be for research performed during the 2024-2025 academic year.
The call details are listed below. Please note that all THI applications will now be submitted via InfoReady. Read the instructions carefully in order to apply on the InfoReady platform. First time users can follow this InfoReady Guide.
The faculty member must be a senate faculty in the Humanities Division at UCSC. Preference will be given to junior faculty when possible.
Fellowship recipients will be expected to present on their work following their fellowship.
