Haverford College Mellon Post-Doctoral Program

Haverford College is pleased to have the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in establishing an endowed fellowship program designed to nurture the professional potential of an emerging generation of young humanists. As a liberal arts college dedicated to the complementary pursuits of excellent teaching and advanced scholarship, Haverford has a profound stake in ensuring continuity in the tradition of scholar-teachers. We likewise believe that an institution such as ours, with its opportunities for faculty development through intimate interdisciplinary exchange and innovative pedagogy, provides an ideal setting for cultivating the creative energies of young scholars. At the same time, Haverford has much to gain from the steady infusion of fresh intellectual and pedagogical perspectives brought by the Fellows from their recent university training and experience.
