The Global Urban Humanities Fellowships for graduate students and faculty at UC Berkeley support research on contemporary and historical cities that engages approaches from the arts and humanities, the humanistic social sciences, and from the disciplines of architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, and urban planning.

Faculty and graduate student fellows will meet once a week in Spring 2020 to discuss their research. Student fellows receive up to $21,000 and must be PhD students advancing to candidacy by Spring 2020. Priority selection generally given to PhD students pursuing the Graduate Certificate. 

The application deadline is November 16, 2018. For more information, visit the GUH Fellowship website.
