Stanford Undergraduates

The Humanities Center is pleased to announce the eighth year of awarding Hume Humanities Honors Fellowships. Each year, eight to ten seniors are selected for the Hume Humanities Honors fellowship. Seniors should be in a humanities discipline and writing an honors thesis. Students are nominated by faculty advisors, and selected by a Stanford Humanities Center committee early in the fall quarter.

Hume Humanities Honors fellows receive a stipend of $1,500 for research project materials and benefit from a year-long association as a cohort. While the shared office at the Humanities Center will not be available this year due to restrictions associated with COVID-19, Hume Fellows will have the opportunity to participate virtually in a variety of tailored group activities to promote intellectual engagement with one another as well as with Center fellows and staff.

These fellowships are made possible by gifts from Mr. George H. Hume and Dr. Leslie P. Hume.

The deadline for nominations for the 2020-21 academic year is 5 pm October 9, 2020.

Please email the nomination form to Jenny Martinez at
