Applicants must hold doctorate or equivalent scholarly credentials.
Young scholars as well as senior scholars are encouraged to apply, but they must have a record of publication, and new Ph.D.s should be aware that the Center does not support the revision of a doctoral dissertation.
In addition to scholars from all fields of the humanities, the Center accepts individuals from the natural and social sciences, the arts, the professions, and public life who are engaged in humanistic projects.
The Center is also international and gladly accepts applications from scholars outside the United States.
Most of the Center's fellowships are unrestricted.
Several, however, are designated for particular areas of research.
These include environmental studies and history; English literature; art history; French history, literature, or culture; Asian Studies; and theology.
Fellowships are individually determined, the amount depending upon the needs of the Fellow and the Center's ability to meet them.
The Center seeks to provide at least half salary and also covers travel expenses to and from North Carolina for Fellows and their dependents.
