Schomburg-Mellon Humanities Summer Institute

Thank you for your interest in the Schomburg-Mellon Humanities Summer Institute. Due to the lack of applications received thus far this year, we will not hold the Institute in summer 2024. 

We will use summer 2024 to prepare for an earlier fellowship posting date (early fall 2024) in preparation for summer 2025. 

Thank you for your patience and your continued interest in scholarship focused on the African Diaspora. 

If there are any questions in the meantime, feel free to contact
