IHS considers applications from individuals who will be full-time graduate students during the 2013-14 academic year and who have a clearly demonstrated research interest in the intellectual and institutional foundations of a free society.
Applicants are evaluated based on three primary criteria:
- relevance of work to the advancement of a free society
- academic or professional performance
- potential for success in chosen field
All applicants will be considered without regard to race, gender, religion, national or ethnic origin, citizenship, or disability. Although IHS considers applications from outside the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, fellowships are generally awarded to applicants who live or study in those countries.
The Humane Studies Fellowship is an award of $2,000 to $15,000.
- Fellowships are awarded for one year, and award winners may reapply for each year of their full-time studies.
- Fellowships take into account the tuition at the recipient’s institution and any other funds received by the recipient.
- Full scholarships will not be awarded to students who will receive full-tuition scholarships or stipends from other sources, although partial awards will be considered.
- Award decisions by IHS and its trustees are final and not subject to appeal.
