Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship
in the Humanities

The Penn Humanities Forum awards five one-year Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowships each academic year to junior scholars in the humanities who are not yet tenured (may not be tenured during the fellowship year).

The Fellowship carries an annual stipend of $46,500 plus single-coverage health insurance and a $2500 research fund, requires that the scholar spend the year in residence at the University of Pennsylvania, and is open to international applicants (appointed under a J-1 visa only). The 2015–16 Call for Applications is now closed.
