Graduate Fellowships in the Humanities and Social Sciences: An Online Workshop
Vin Moscardelli & LuAnn Saunders-Kanabay (UConn Office of National Scholarships & Fellowships)
Organized by the UConn Humanities Institute, the Office of National Scholarships and Fellowships, and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
This workshop will introduce UConn’s Office of National Scholarships & Fellowships, its staff, and the various things the office does. In particular, Vin Moscardelli and LuAnn Saunders-Kanabay will go over why applying for fellowships is valuable in and of itself, why they encourage students to work with the Office to discuss specific opportunities, and how to approach several prestigious fellowships (for example, Fulbright, ACLS, and Mellon fellowships).

Thanks to the generous support of the University of Connecticut Provost’s Office, Graduate School, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and UConn Foundation, as well as our own grants, we have had quite a productive year so far. We have been able to fund 13 residential fellowships this year, including three visiting fellows, six UConn faculties, and four UConn graduate dissertation fellows. We funded and co-sponsored various events and programs, including a lecture and book signing by celebrated author, Colson Whitehead, presentations by award-winning and celebrated scholars and activities, Annette Vee, Rebecca Traister, and Aruna D’Souza, and the rare chance to see a performance by distinguished flamenco guitar player, Oscar Herrero.
We also welcomed World Poetry Books, the only publisher in the United States dedicated solely to publishing books of international poetry in English Translation, and we kicked off our The Future of Truth initiative with a 275,000 grant from the Henry Luce Foundation. We work hard to cultivate creativity among scholars of the arts and humanities at UConn, but we also find inspiration in the achievements and successes of our fellows, long after they leave UCHI.
Here is a snapshot of what we have achieved in just a few short months:
