About the Organization

The HuMetricsHSS initiative endeavors to help create and support frameworks that enable members of the academy writ large to reflect upon and identify the core values that animate their work, to consider how their values align with those of the institutions in which they work, and to develop indicators of impact that demonstrate how these values are enacted in the practices and the products of their work.

About the Fellowship

HuMetricsHSS Community Fellows are individuals who are engaged in transforming academic culture at their own institutions, whether by rethinking what forms of scholarship “count,” considering how indicators and metrics might  be informed by values, or engaging their communities in values-inflected ways. Thanks to the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, we are pleased to offer modest grants to help support such work.

Comprised of individuals working in academic and nonprofit academic–adjacent sectors, the Humane Metrics in the Humanities and Social Sciences (HuMetricsHSS) initiative facilitates the creation of locally relevant values-based frameworks that enable scholars in the humanities and social sciences (HSS), academic departments, and institutions to tell more textured and compelling stories about the impact of their research and the variety of ways it enriches public life.

The Fellows Program is open to contingent, full-time, and tenure-line faculty, administrators, librarians, and staff from any US-based institution of higher education, including community colleges, tribal colleges, HBCUs, liberal arts colleges, and teachers’ colleges, as well as the entire range of research universities.

The HuMetricsHSS Commuity Fellowship is open to both individual and collaborative applications, but we ask that only one person serve as corresponding applicant for the purposes of selection.


Each HuMetricsHSS Fellow or collaborative team will receive a one-time stipend of $4500 for use over the course of the fifteen-month fellowship. This award amount is the same regardless of the number of collaborators.
