Fellowships for Stanford Undergraduates

The Humanities Center is pleased to announce the 10th year of awarding Hume Honors Fellowships. Each year, eight to ten seniors are selected for the Hume Honors Fellows Program. 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 Honors fellows receive a stipend of $1,500 for research project materials and benefit from a year-long association as a cohort. Fellows have access to a shared office space at the Center and participate 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 call for nominations for the 2022-23 academic year has passed.

For more information, contact Svetlana Turetskaya by email or call (650) 690-0763.

The Hume fellowship program made me realize the beauty of scholarly writing. Through this program, I learned that writing an honors thesis is engaging in a scholarly conversation that extends throughout history. I feel blessed to have contributed a small but meaningful verse.
