2022-23 Graduate Student Fellows selected

2022-23 Graduate Student Fellows: Charlotte Fressilli, Lacy Murphy, Annika Nilsson, Rebecca Dudley, Juan Manuel Ramírez Velázquez and Laurel Taylor.

The Center for the Humanities offers WashU graduate students writing dissertations in humanities disciplines the opportunity to apply for one of six competitively awarded Graduate Student Fellowships each academic year, providing a $5,000 stipend for a one-semester residential fellowship. While working at the humanities center in their own office, Graduate Student Fellows actively participate in the center’s intensive, interdisciplinary intellectual environment, discussing their research with the Faculty Fellows in residence, other WashU humanities faculty and invited guests.
