Public Humanities Initiative (Medical Humanities/Cultural Heritage) | Civic Humanist Fellows

The HRC’s Public Humanities Initiative invites graduate students in the School of Humanities to submit applications for two Civic Humanists Fellowships. Both fellows will interact with area high school students; one fellow will give talks and lead lessons pertaining to Medical Humanities, and the second fellow will give talks and lead lessons pertaining to Cultural Heritage.

Fellows will receive a stipend of $7500 and will work part-time on developing this program from July 2017 through June 2018. Hours are flexible and the time and nature of the work will vary throughout the year. Stipends will, however, be paid out evenly over the course of both semesters.

Eligibility: All graduate students in the School of Humanities who have completed coursework and who will be in residence in Houston during the fellowship period are eligible to apply. They must demonstrate the potential both to communicate the importance of humanistic research to a broad community and to incorporate aspects of the public sphere into their understanding of the humanities. Applicants with teaching experience will be given preference.

Application Materials:

  • Letter of interest indicating which of the two fellowship options is preferred (i.e., Medical Humanities or Cultural Heritage)

  • ​CV
