Endowing Liberal Arts Postdoctoral Fellows in the Humanities at Lawrence University

Endowment for two dedicated postdoctoral fellowships in the humanities.

Lawrence University will use an NEH Challenge Grant to extend and sustain Lawrence Fellows, a program with proven transformational impact in the humanities at Lawrence. The program brings recent PhD recipients to Lawrence for two-year fellowships, during which they broaden the Lawrence humanities curriculum by teaching new and revised courses, often on topics more typically seen in the curricula of large universities. A structured mentoring program prepares Fellows for careers as liberal arts teacher-scholars. The Humanities Institute--a new enhancement to the Fellows program conceived by Lawrence humanities faculty--will engage humanities Fellows in professional development for Lawrence faculty, through year-long, graduate-style seminars on emerging, rapidly evolving, or other timely areas of humanistic study. An NEH Challenge Grant will permanently endow two Lawrence Fellows devoted exclusively to the humanities, and deepen their lasting impact through the NEH Humanities Institute.
