Our current programs include Faculty Fellowships for Brown faculty, Humanities Research Group Grants for Brown faculty and students, Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowships in the humanities for non-Brown postdoctoral scholars, Postdoctoral Fellowships in International Humanities focused on the question of the humanities and the transnational university for non-Brown postdoctoral scholars, and Graduate Fellowships in the Humanities for Brown graduate students.

The academic year 2011-12 sees the inauguration of Brown in the World/The World at Brown, a program sponsored by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, that brings leading international scholars to Brown as well as affording opportunities for Brown graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to enhance their scholarly opportunities at leading international universities.

Looking ahead to 2012-13, Brown and Instituto Empresa (IE) launch a new partnership, offering postdoctoral teaching fellowships to recent Brown PhDs and current Cogut Center postdoctoral fellows.
