The Fox Center is pleased to partner with the Office of the President to offer an annual Fellowship available to tenured members of the Emory University faculty in the professional schools and Oxford College for an academic year of study and residence in the Center. The purpose of the FCHI President's Humanities Fellows Program is to stimulate and support humanistic research by providing faculty with the necessary time, space, and other resources.

The Fox Center is pleased to offer three different categories of postdoctoral fellowships: Two-Year, One-Year, and Poetics. The purpose of the FCHI Postdoctoral Fellows Program is to stimulate and support humanistic research by providing scholars in early stages of their careers with the necessary time, space, and other resources. In addition, the Program was created to allow the Emory community access to a range of humanistic work by visiting scholars from other institutions. Successful applicants for the two year Fellowship will be expected to present a completed project that, at the end of the Fellowship, could be sent to a press for consideration.
