Non-Residential Fellowship Program – Apply

The aim of the H&C Non-Residential Fellowship Program is to allow journalists, publically-minded academics and artists the opportunity to write books, longform articles or theatrical pieces engaging with the main research questions of the project and aimed at a popular audience.
Non-Residential Fellows are expected to propose projects that engage with one or more of the above questions or sub-questions. No project treating topics in bioethics, environmental ethics or sexual ethics can be accepted, as these are outside the boundaries of the donor funding category associated with this grant.
 
Funding will vary depending on the project proposed, but is not normally expected to exceed $20,000.

Applications will be considered on a rolling basis. Under normal circumstances, and whenever possible, applicants will be notified within six weeks of application. They should be submitted in either pdf or Word format to pdp@uconn.edu with “Non-Residential Fellowship Application” in the subject line of the email. The application will consist of three parts:

  1. A proposal narrative (1500 words maximum). The narrative should include the following information:
  • The goals of the project;
  • How these goals address those of the IHPD project;
  • How the goals will be pursued;
  • The plan for publication or production, including the expected venues for either;
  • The expected outputs or deliverables;
  • The project timeline.
  1. A CV
  1. Two letters of recommendation that speak to the quality and feasibility of the proposed project and its potential public impact. It is the applicant’s responsibility to contact these references; letters should be sent directly to pdp@uconn.edu.
