Public Humanities Fellowship
Supported by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Public Humanities fellow serves in a one-year residency with the Odyssey Project, a free college-credit earning program for income-eligible adults seeking access to higher education outside traditional pathways. While in residence, the Public Humanities Fellow participates in the Odyssey Project’s activities, co-thinking and co-learning with the Odyssey Project staff to develop the public- and/or community-facing dimensions of their research.
