Arts & Humanities Fellowship

One of Provost Duerk's major goals is to enhance the University of Miami’s reputation for scholarly excellence as well as competitiveness for external funding to support research and creative scholarship. The University of Miami Fellowship in the Arts & Humanities was established to support faculty in the Arts and Humanities, with the ultimate goal of elevating both individual faculty careers and the University’s scholarly reputation. The Fellowship in the Arts & Humanities is intended to provide support for the startup of new projects as well as for advancement of existing projects.
