Fellowship Application

​The academic year 2020-2021 application cycle opens February 1, 2020.
Application deadline: March 2, 2020

HumanitiesX 2020-21 Logo
Faculty in the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences and their Chicago-area community partners are invited to apply to join HumanitiesX as fellows for the 2020-21 academic year.

HumanitiesX fellows are supported for the academic year, so that they may co-design an interdisciplinary, project-based course in the humanities for delivery in Spring 2021. HumanitiesX courses may be taught at any level outside of the first-year program, including as special topics courses, Sophomore Seminars (LSP 200), Capstone courses, Experiential Learning (EL) courses, or graduate courses. They may be listed in one unit or cross-listed between units.

Interested faculty and community partners should review the HumanitiesX model and consult with the initiative's Faculty Director, Professor Lisa Dush, prior to submitting an application.

Types of Fellows

HumanitiesX applications are submitted by a team of three: two faculty members in DePaul's College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences and a community partner. Teams whose members have prior experience with academic/community partnerships, as well as those that include a community-partner applicant from an arts or cultural organization, are particularly encouraged to apply.

Faculty Fellows

Full-time faculty in the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences are eligible to apply to be a Faculty Fellow. At least one of the two faculty on the team must hold a tenure-line appointment, and faculty will typically be from different academic units.

Faculty Fellows receive a three-course reduction in Academic Year 2020-21 (one course per academic quarter), as well as one unit of summer salary.

Community Fellows

Official representatives of a non-DePaul domestic or international non-profit or non-governmental organization are eligible to apply to be a Community Fellow. Applicants must be able and willing to commit to 10 months of collaborative work with their DePaul team, including the Collaborative's group sessions.

Community Fellows' organizations receive a $17,600 pass-through-grant, and Fellows have access to office space on DePaul’s Lincoln Park campus.
