Sequence of Fields

The Howard Foundation offers fellowships in a five-year rotation of fields, as described below for the next five years. Please note that the fellowships are awarded in the spring of the award year, and the deadline for application is the fall of the preceding year. Successful candidates will be given the option of postponing receipt of their fellowship, so as to make the Howard competition accessible to those whose personal plans do not line up exactly with the year in which awards are offered in their fields. While the Foundation plans to follow this sequence of fields, additional changes may from time to time need to be made as warranted by the limited resources of the Foundation. 

Please note that the application deadline is at the beginning of November of the year preceding the award year. The specific date will be announced in May of the application year.
