American Academy in Rome
The Rome Prize
The American Academy in Rome is the only American overseas center for independent study and advanced research in the fine arts and the humanities. The Academy invites proposals in archaeology, history, the history of art and architecture, literature and musicology. Note that these disciplines are intended to be suggestive, not exclusive. Any humanistic approach, or combination of approaches, to these areas will be given consideration. Furthermore, comparative projects and projects that cut across the conventional and arbitrary chronological limits listed above are welcome and will be examined by both (or all) the juries whose areas are involved.
The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens

Stanford Humanities Center
Stanford Humanities Fellowships
Since its inception in 1980, the Humanities Center has offered External Faculty Fellowships to all ranks of the professoriate and from a wide variety of disciplinary fields. Fellowships are awarded to support research projects in the humanities; creative arts projects are not eligible. The Humanities Center seeks candidates whose research is likely to contribute to intellectual exchange among a diverse group of scholars within the disciplines of the humanities.
The Contemplative Mind in Society
The Contemplative Practice Fellowships
These fellowships seek to restore and renew the critical contribution that contemplative practices can make to the life of teaching, learning, and scholarship. At the heart of the program is the belief that pedagogical and intellectual benefits can be discovered by bringing contemplative practice into the academy, and that contemplative awareness can help to create a more just, compassionate, and reflective society.
