Regional Faculty and Professional
Mellon Research Fellowships
The Penn Humanities Forum each year offers a small number of $5000 fellowships for standing faculty in the humanities from Philadelphia-area colleges and universities and for directors and curators of Philadelphia-area cultural organizations. Interested candidates should be conducting work related to the Forum's theme for the year in which the award is granted.
Fellows must attend the weekly Mellon Research Seminars at the Penn Humanities Forum (Tuesdays, noon–2:00pm; please allow travel time when scheduling classes and other obligations) and present their research at one of sessions during the year. Other members of the Tuesday Mellon Research Seminar include Penn Faculty Fellows, Postdoctoral Fellows, and others.
The fellowship includes access to the University of Pennsylvania library for the term of the award.
