The School for Advanced Research (SAR), an independent research center located in Santa Fe, NM, invites applications for its 2013–2014 Resident Scholar Fellowships.
SAR awards approximately 6 fellowships each year to scholars who have completed their research and analysis and who need time to think and write about topics important to the understanding of humankind. Resident scholars may approach their research from 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. A six-month fellowship is also available, as indicated below.
Deadline for applications is November 1st, 2012.
Six types of fellowships are available:
Campbell Fellowship. One six-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.
Henry Luce Fellowship. One nine-month fellowship is available for a postdoctoral Asian or U.S. scholar whose research focuses on East Asia or Southeast Asia.
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, either pre- or post-doctoral, working in either the humanities or the sciences.
NEH Fellowship. One nine-month fellowship is available for a postdoctoral U.S. scholar whose project relates to the humanities.
Anne Ray Fellowship. One nine-month fellowship is available for an established Native American scholar, working in the humanities, arts, or the sciences, who has a commitment to providing mentorship to recent Native graduates or graduate students. In addition to working on their own research, the Anne Ray Resident Scholar serves as a mentor to two interns working at the Indian Arts Research Center.
In addition, SAR is interested in hosting exceptional scholars who have received funding through the following programs: Ford Foundation Diversity Fellowships, Mellon/ACLS Recent Doctoral Recipients Fellowships, and Visiting Fulbright Scholar fellowships. Applicants to these non-SAR fellowship programs whose research is consistent with SAR’s mission may be able to join the School’s dynamic intellectual community for the duration of their fellowship. Interested scholars can contact SAR’s Resident Scholar Program for more information.
