The Institute for Humane Studies provides Humane Studies Fellowships to graduate students and outstanding undergraduates planning academic careers and engaged in liberty-advancing research. Past fellows have researched topics such as historical and contemporary ideas on freedom of action and the rule of law, and the fellowships support students in variety of fields, including economics, philosophy, law, political science, history, and sociology.
Awards range from $2,000 to $15,000 and fellowship winners may re-apply for each year of their studies. In 2010, the Institute for Humane Studies awarded more than $650,000 to 180 students. The program is open to full-time graduate students, including law and MBA students, and undergraduate juniors and seniors with a demonstrated interest in pursuing an academic career. The application deadline for the 2012-2013 academic year is December 31, 2011.
