School for Advanced Research (SAR) - Resident Scholars Awards

Deadline: 11/01/2012

The School for Advanced Research (SAR) awards approximately six Resident Scholar 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. Scholarship duration varies from 6-9 months. Six 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 Ph.D. candidate or postdoctoral scholar working in either the humanities or the social sciences.

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.

National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship
One nine-month fellowship is available for a postdoctoral scholar whose project relates to the humanities. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or have resided in the U.S. for three years.

Anne Ray Fellowship
One nine-month fellowship is available for an established Native American scholar, working in the humanities, arts, or social sciences, who has a commitment to providing mentorship to recent graduates or graduate students. In addition to working on their own research, the scholar serves as a mentor to two interns working at the Indian Arts Research Center.

Campbell Fellowship
One six-month fellowship is available for a female postdoctoral social scientist from a developing nation whose work addresses women’s economic and social empowerment in that nation.
