The Mellon Fellowship of Scholars in the Humanities (MFSH) brings outstanding junior scholars (within three years of the PhD) to Stanford on two-year fellowships. Fellows pursue research, teach two courses per year in an affiliated Stanford Department, and participate in an active program of scholarly exchanges with other fellows, Stanford faculty, and outside visitors. The MFSH aims to foster fellows' careers through close engagement with established scholars, including Stanford faculty associated with the program, internal and external fellows at the Stanford Humanities Center, and visiting scholars and field experts. The MFSH invites major figures in the humanities to present public lectures and participate in small group sessions with the fellows. Mellon scholars gather throughout the year to present their research to one another and for professional development workshops devoted to pedagogy, publishing, and mentoring.Our VPDoR Diversity Journey
