The School for Advanced Research Resident Scholar Fellowships
Resident scholar fellowships are awarded each year by the School for Advanced Research (SAR) to four or five scholars who have completed their research and who need time to prepare manuscripts on topics important to the understanding of humankind. Resident scholars may approach their research from the perspective of anthropology or from related fields such as history, sociology, art, and philosophy. Both humanistically and scientifically oriented scholars are encouraged to apply.
SAR provides Resident Scholars with low-cost housing and office space on campus, a stipend up to $40,000, library assistance, and other benefits during a nine-month tenure, from September 1 through May 31.
Deadline for applications is November 1st, 2013.
Four types of fellowships are available:
Weatherhead Fellowships. Up to two nine-month fellowships are available for either Ph.D. candidates or scholars with doctorates whose work is either humanistic or social scientific in nature.
Katrin H. Lamon Fellowship. One nine-month fellowship is available for a Native American scholar, pre- or post-doctoral, working in either the humanities or the sciences.
Anne Ray Fellowship. One fellowship is available for an established Native scholar with a Master’s or PhD in the arts, humanities, or social sciences who has a commitment to providing mentorship to recent graduates or graduate students. In addition to working on his or her own writing or curatorial research project, the scholar serves as a mentor to two interns working at the Indian Arts Research Center.
Campbell Fellowship. One six- or nine-month fellowship is available for a female post-doctoral social scientist from a developing nation whose work addresses women’s economic and social empowerment in that nation.
