The Institute for Humane Societies (IHS) supports students and professors pursue their intellectual and career goals. Their vision is “for free speech, open inquiry, and intellectual diversity to flourish on college campuses; for all college students to have an opportunity to study and debate the ideas of a free society; and for a growing community of scholars to research and teach the principles and practice of freedom.” In addition to awarding a $300 scholarship to help offset the costs associated with applying to PhD programs, the IHS also provides a $1,500 scholarship to doctoral students. If awarded the scholarship, you will also become eligible in the next academic year to apply for the renewable IHS Humane Studies Fellowship that awards up to $15,000. You will also gain access to their network of liberty-advancing scholars, and receive invitations to exclusive workshops designed specifically to help graduate students improve their research and further their academic careers.
