Penn Faculty Mellon Research Fellowships
The Penn Humanities Forum awards a small number of fellowships each year to Penn faculty in the humanities and allied departments. The fellowships are for research that relates to the Forum's theme for the year in which the award is granted.
Two types of awards are available: $5000 for junior faculty (assistant professors) payable as salary, and $10,000 for senior faculty payable to departments for one course offset.
PHF Penn Faculty Mellon Research Fellows must attend the Forum's weekly Mellon research seminars (Tuesdays, noon–2:00) and present their research at one of the sessions during the year. In addition to Penn faculty, members of the Tuesday Mellon Research Seminar include Mellon Postdoctoral Fellows, Regional Faculty, and others.
