Tanner Humanities Center fellows are housed in our offices in the Carolyn Tanner Irish Humanities Building. Fellows not only pursue their own projects, but also engage with a community of scholars, including faculty and graduate student fellows from the University of Utah. They workshop their research and present it to a public audience in spring during our weekly Work-in-Progress series. Many of our fellows have published work undertaken at the center in academic journals and in books with national and international presses.
Fellowships run for a semester or academic year and stipends vary from $19,000 to $60,000.
