Whitney Fellowship in the Environmental Humanities

Yale Environmental Humanities and the Whitney Humanities Center co-sponsor the Whitney Fellowship in the Environmental Humanities for students in the Yale Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.

The Whitney Fellowship provides a small top-up stipend in the first year of graduate school, as well as mentorship opportunities and additional programming. Many Whitney Fellows complete the Graduate Certificate in the Environmental Humanities. The Whitney Fellows have included incoming graduate students from History, English, Anthropology, American Studies, Medieval Studies, East Asian Languages and Literatures, French, and Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations.

Applicants to Yale graduate programs may indicate their interest in the Whitney Fellowship on their applications, or Directors of Graduate Studies may nominate admitted students for the top-up award.
