Application Deadline: November 7, 2016
Resident scholar fellowships are awarded annually by the School for Advanced Research (SAR) to up to six scholars who have completed their research and who need time to prepare manuscripts or dissertations 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 and sociology. Scholars from the humanities and social sciences are encouraged to apply. Competitive proposals have a strong empirical dimension, meaning that they address the facts of human life on the ground. They also situate the proposed research within a specific cultural or historical context and engage a broad scholarly literature. Applicants should make a convincing case for the intellectual significance of their projects and their potential contribution to a range of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences.
SAR’s beautiful campus nourishes the scholarly spirit, combining solitude and freedom from institutional responsibilities with a lively exchange of ideas. Resident scholars are provided with an office, low-cost housing, a stipend up to $50,000, library assistance, and other benefits.
