BOHS Leadership Fellows and Awards

The BoHS is launching an inaugural Leadership Fellows Program. We are seeking faculty who have an interest in becoming administrative leaders in our human sciences fields and would welcome the opportunity to work closely with the BoHS, its leaders, and its members in developing their administrative leadership skills.

Selected fellows will be awarded up to $3000 to support their projects and will be assigned mentors to support their activities as fellows. Project funds (including travel stipends) will be awarded to the fellows for a period of one year, to begin immediately following the BoHS annual fall meeting and to culminate in attending and presenting at the following BoHS annual meeting. Two cohorts of fellows will collaborate to plan an annual leadership development conference to begin in 2023 and coincide with the BoHS annual meeting.

View the fellowship brochure for more information. Applications for the second cohort will open available in the fall.

Although nominees may be Human Science scholars, it is not required. The award is intended to recognize an outstanding leader who helps to advance the Human Sciences nationally and/or internationally. The award is named in honor of Ellen Swallow Richards, who dedicated her life to applying research to enhance the well-being of individuals, families and communities.

It enhances the experimental content of undergraduate education in the Human Sciences. The BoHS Undergraduate Research Mentor Award is intended to advance undergraduate student development and a national undergraduate research agenda for the Human Sciences.
