The Wolf Humanities Center at the University of Pennsylvania is now accepting applications for its 2025–2026 Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowships in the Humanities on the general theme of Truth.

The fellowship is open to scholars in the humanities who received, or will receive, their PhD between May 2020 and September 2025. Preference will be given to candidates not yet in tenure track positions whose proposals are interdisciplinary, who have not previously enjoyed use of the resources of the University of Pennsylvania, and who would particularly benefit from and contribute to Penn’s intellectual life.
