Humane Studies Fellowships

Humane Studies Fellowships are awarded to graduate students and outstanding undergraduates planning academic careers and engaged in liberty-advancing research. 


The fellowships support students in variety of fields, including economics, philosophy, law, political science, history, and sociology.

Awards range from $2,000 to $15,000 and fellowship winners may re-apply for each year of their studies. In 2010, the Institute for Humane Studies awarded more than $650,000 to 180 students.

The program is open to full-time graduate students, including law and MBA students, and undergraduate juniors and seniors with a demonstrated interest in pursuing an academic career.

  • market-based approaches to environmental policy
  • the legal development of privacy and property rights in 18th-century England
  • the role of patient autonomy in bioethics
  • impediments to economic growth in developing countries
  • the relationship between U.S. presidential politics, fiscal policies, and economic performance
