Funding our graduate studies can become a very difficult struggle, but these scholarships may remove some of the burden. Since 2003 the Institute for Humane Studies has awarded $6.5 million to nearly 1,800 promising graduate students.

The Humane Studies Fellowship is open to current or prospective full time graduate students from accredited universities anywhere in the world whose research interests are related to ideas of a free society. This scholarship also provides individual advising and an extensive support network to help ensure academic success both before and after you receive your degree.

A Network of Fellows, Too

You’ll also be joining an impressive network of scholars, including David Schmidtz at the University of Arizona, Tyler Cowen at George Mason University, Jayme Lemke at Brown University, and Randall Kroszner at the University of Chicago. Plus, Fellows will be able to attend invitation-only colloquia and weekend conferences.

Apply before January 5, 2014 and the IHS will waive the $25 application fee. Just use the code HSFJan5.
