Fellowships to attend the Futures of American Studies Institute

The Humanities Institute provides support for at least two Ph.D. students to attend the Futures of American Studies Institute at Dartmouth College, held annually in June.

The FAS Institute is a week-long workshop led by Donald Pease, a former HI Distinguished-Scholar-in-Residence, and several other leading Americanists (in literature, critical theory, and history). Participating students and faculty present and discuss works in progress.

The fee for participating in the Institute, including housing and registration, is $695, which will be paid by the Humanities Institute for three successful applicants. Students are responsible for travel, meals, and all other expenses.
