Centre for Humanities Research (CHR) > University of the Western Cape (UWC) - South Africa > Fellowships

Under the auspices of the DST-NRF Flagship on Critical Thought in African Humanities and the SARChI Chair in Visual History and Theory, the Centre for Humanities Research (CHR) at the University of the Western Cape (UWC) is pleased to announce the 2019 Fellowship competition for Post-doctoral, PhD, MA and Honours awards. The organisers invite emerging scholars in the humanities and interpretive social sciences to join a team of scholars and artists who, in conversation and collaboration, continue to contribute significantly to redefining the study of the humanities and social sciences locally and internationally. For 2019, prospective candidates will be selected in accordance with the research priorities of the National Flagship Project in the Humanities and the SARChI Chair in Visual History and Theory funded through the National Research Foundation, the National Institute for the Humanities and Social Sciences, and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

The value of these prestigious fellowships will be determined by guidelines set by the NRF and Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. In 2019, fellowships will be offered at Postdoctoral, PhD, MA and Honours levels in disciplines associated with the humanities. The awards cover a monthly stipend, travel costs, accommodation and basic research expenses. The fellowship cannot be held concurrently with other fellowships without permission of the Director of the CHR and all recipients of grants will be required to fulfil the obligations of the program.

Deadline: 1 October 2018
