Trinity Long Room Hub and SOF/Heyman (Heyman-Hub) Fellows

Eligibility Tenured, Tenure-Track, and Tenure-Equivalent Faculty
Status Application Period Closed
Next Application Cycle TBD

The Trinity Long Room Hub (TLRH)—the humanities center of Trinity College Dublin—and The Society of Fellows and Heyman Center for the Humanities at Columbia (SOF/Heyman) welcome applications from tenured, tenure-track, and tenure-equivalent Columbia University, Barnard College, and Trinity faculty for short-term Heyman-Hub visiting fellowships.


TLRH and the SOF/Heyman annually award Heyman-Hub fellowships to at least one member from each of our respective communities so as to allow awardees to pursue their research projects while in residence at the other’s institution (normally, for a period of four to six weeks, excluding the months of June, July, and August). Faculty in the arts, humanities, and humanistic social sciences are eligible to apply. Fellows are expected to present their work on one or two occasions during the fellowship period and to interact with faculty, research scholars, and other visiting faculty and fellows in residence.

These fellowships are intended to cover the costs of travel, accommodation, and living expenses up to a maximum of $5K or the equivalent of €5K (whichever is greater) on a receipt basis, in line with University expense policies. While applications are made to the home institution, the host institution vets them and issues invitations to visit. Awards are made on a rolling basis.

Tenure, tenure-track, and tenure-equivalent faculty in disciplines aligned with the mission of the Trinity Long Room Hub and The Society of Fellows and Heyman Center for the Humanities. The fellowship is open exclusively to Columbia University, Barnard College, and Trinity faculty.

Applicants are required to submit the following:
