Fellowships & Grants

The College of Arts and Humanities is firmly committed to supporting the research and scholarship of its graduate students through several types of funding: travel awards to support conference travel, both domestic and international; dissertation writing fellowships; and the James Harris Arts and Humanities Visionary Scholarship.

On these pages you will find detailed information on these programs as well as links to several Graduate School resources and awards. Please discuss these with your advisor and your Graduate Program Director well in advance of your intended application. Many of these awards have several submission stages (department > college > Grad School), each with its own set of deadlines and criteria. We also include Tips for Grant Writing Success and a database for external funding and scholarships. Good luck! Please let us know if you have questions, please send an email to: grad-fellowships-arhu@umd.edu.

The College also manages an extensive database of internal and external fellowship and grant opportunities in the humanities to help students identify sources of funding for graduate and post-graduate education and research. The database also provides an archive students may use to learn more about annual fellowship offerings (beyond those with upcoming deadlines).

Our students have been very successful in obtaining such prestigious awards as Mellon Dissertation Fellowships, Ford Foundation Fellowships, AAUW Fellowships and Fulbright-Hays Fellowships.
