The Humanities Collaboratory Faculty Outreach Program is for visiting faculty and/or director-level staff from any colleges and universities nationally. Each faculty/staff member can submit an application where they will nominate one graduate student from their institution to travel with them to Johns Hopkins for this residential and fully immersed training program. Your two-person team will gain hands-on training in the new pedagogical model for humanities summer research, observe the Humanities Collaboratory, participate in webinars and info sessions both pre- and post-program, and have hands-on support from post-Collaboratory mentoring to program design as you launch similar programs at your institutions.

*Summer 2022 program will be hosted on campus pending pandemic restrictions.


  • Hands-on training in an innovative model for humanities research
  • Participate among a diverse group of mentors and students
  • Ongoing support in program design
  • $10000 faculty and $4000 graduate student stipends
  • Transportation and housing provided


Residential training, which takes place June 1-June 17, 2022 and July 31-August 5, 2022, will allow participants to learn about new undergraduate research methods in an active classroom from diverse student participants and Hopkins instructors. This includes student-centered idea generation without a central text, the live modeling of initial humanities inquiry, and the development of a preliminary thesis or hypothesis that drives students’ independent readings to make them research-driven as opposed to report- driven. Program participants will become active parts of the Collaboratory. In the final week, participants will join students as they prepare to disseminate their research to a large public audience. Following the program, we will support alum as they work to incorporate Collaboratory-style classes and programs at their own institution.
