Since 2004, the Center for the Humanities, in collaboration with the College of Arts & Sciences, has offered research fellowships to senior tenured faculty from Boston University. All BUCH fellowships are one semester in length. Senior research fellows receive one semester’s leave of absence at full salary. The Center provides their departments with course replacement funds for two courses per faculty member. In 2007, these fellowships were named in honor of former CAS Dean Jeffrey Henderson, who helped to make them possible.

The Center for the Humanities Executive Committee reads the applications and selects the fellows. Applications are judged on the basis of their intellectual quality and scholarly significance, as well as on their direct relevance to the humanities.

The annual HSRF application deadline, including letters of recommendation, is October 15.
