Minority candidates are particularly encouraged to apply. Previously unsuccessful fellowship candidates may reapply. The prime objective of the Mellon Fellowships is to identify and encourage persons who are committed to teaching and have a broad vision of learning.

Outstanding future promise, as attested to by faculty members, will be considered critical. The statement of interest in the field will also be read with great care, and candidates will be will advised to spend the time necessary to explain in this document their intellectual interests, hopes, and plans for the future.

Winners of Mellon Fellowships may take their awards to any accredited graduate school of arts and sciences in the United States and Canada. Each candidate is expected to apply to graduate school, in accordance with normal procedures, for admission to a program leading not only to the M.A. but also to the Ph.D. degree. Payment of the stipend will be made in two installments, the first in September, the second in January. Mellon Fellows are expected to carry a full course load.
