Faculty Fellows Program
The Center for the Humanities is proud to advocate for humanistic work at Grinnell College in a number of ways. The Humanities Center Fellows Program seeks to support and celebrate faculty research. It provides a half-course buyout and additional discretionary research funds to one faculty member per year. Faculty from all academic divisions are eligible to apply. The lone requirement is that the fellow’s research employ or substantially engage humanistic theories, methods, or practices.

Vivero Student Fellow Community
The Center for the Humanities is proud to partner with the Grinnell Libraries and the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Assessment’s Digital Liberal Arts Collaborative to support the Vivero digital humanities program. The Vivero program offers student fellows training and development opportunities in digital humanities and matches student fellows with faculty research projects. With diversity, equity, and inclusion at its core, the Vivero program seeks and selects student fellows who will help ensure that theories and practices of digital humanities reflect a spectrum of identities, voices, and perspectives.
The Center’s contribution to the Vivero program includes training and professional development opportunities. We underwrite a 1-credit course introducing fellows to foundational ethical considerations, theories, and practices in digital humanities. We also support professional development opportunities that often double as networking and cohort-building experiences.
