The Woodrow Wilson Foundation has been proud to support nearly 23,000 Fellows who collectively have an impressive record of scholarship, teaching, service, and public influence. Among them is a select group whose work advances the disciplines in all fields of the humanities and social sciences. The Foundation’s offerings in these areas are designed to encourage promising scholars early in their career, helping them not only to complete their dissertation writing but also to take the early steps towards publishing.
