Learn more about the new Amherst Folger Humanities Fellowship which provides one Amherst College graduate* with nine months of professional development experience at two world-class institutions—the Folger Shakespeare Library and the Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection. Designed to support career exploration in the humanities, applicants can pursue hands-on work in curation and exhibit preparation, research and publication, collection development or conservation, marketing and communication, or education and public outreach initiatives.
The fellowship term runs from September 2020 through May 2021 and includes a $23,000 stipend, and optional health insurance; free housing in Washington, D.C., at Dumbarton Oaks for the term of the fellowship; and discounted access to arts and culture institutions across Washington, D.C.
