District Fellowship

HumanitiesDC created the District Fellowship to support early-career humanists, historians and non-profit professionals who currently reside in the DC area. This program is meant to provide fellows with hands-on experience, professional development, and opportunities to lead their own projects or initiatives within program areas. Fellows work side-by-side with HumanitiesDC staff, receive coaching and get increased exposure to the DC humanities community. Selected annually, fellows take on 9-month roles where they work closely with the HumanitiesDC team, supporting the organization’s work as well as focusing on a related individual project that is completed by the conclusion of the fellowship.

Currently closed.
