Heyman Center Fellowships

About the Fellowship

Funded in 2017-2018 by the Office of the Executive Vice-President of the Arts & Sciences, the Heyman Center Fellowships provide four junior and four senior Columbia faculty with course relief during the academic year.  These fellowships allow faculty to reduce their teaching loads to a minimum of one course per semester during the award year in order to conduct research and to participate in a regular weekly seminar, chaired by the Faculty Seminar Director at the Society of Fellows and Heyman Center for the Humanities.  Four post-MPhil graduate students will also be appointed, who will receive a $5,000 research allowance for their participation.

The Heyman Center Fellows seminar will meet regularly throughout the academic year (ten times each semester). In addition to providing the opportunity to present work-in-progress, the seminar will foster discussion across disciplines and fields, creating opportunities for collaborative research and teaching in future semesters. Heyman Center Fellows will have the opportunity to propose Heyman Center public events, which they would take the lead in organizing.
