Faculty Fellowships

IASH offers up to five fellowships a semester to Binghamton University faculty. IASH Faculty Fellows are released from teaching one course during either the Fall or the Spring semester and their department/program is remunerated for the release as needed either by Harpur College or if not Harpur faculty, by the appropriate unit dean. Fellows receive a small research allowance from IASH. During the fellowship semester, Faculty Fellows participate in the IASH meeting and publicly present their work. IASH meets on Wednesdays noon – 1:30pm.

Faculty who have had an IASH Fellowship in the past can apply again. The waiting period between Fellowships is three years. For example, if your most recent Fellowship was in Fall 2019, your next Fellowship can be in Fall 2022 and you would apply for it in Fall 2021.

To facilitate innovative work in the public humanities, digital humanities, as well as innovative teaching, IASH encourages faculty to submit proposals in these areas. These proposals are considered on par with traditional research-writing proposals.
