Research Fellowships

IHC’s Research Fellowships are focused on supporting humanities research in and on Idaho. Topics do not need to focus on Idaho to be considered, unless you are a scholar living out of state. With an award size of $3,500, the IHC awards up to 4 Research Fellowships. The application is due September 15th, with a decision the first week of November.

A scholar for the Research Fellowship is considered someone who holds a Master’s degree in the humanities fields or a Tribal Elder.

Goals of the Research Fellowship include:

  • Supporting Idaho’s scholars with research
  • Promoting the public humanities through publications and presentations
  • Generate new research in the humanities

Examples of projects include:

  • Travel
  • Lodging
  • Course releases
