The College of Humanities and Social Sciences is proud that eight of its current or former faculty members have been awarded Guggenheim Fellowships.
These fellowships, which recognize individuals who have shown notable promise for productive scholarship or creative ability in the arts, are awarded based upon a yearly competition.

The grants are made for a minimum of six months and a maximum of twelve months, given with the objective of allowing the recipient to work with creative freedom.
