Two to four Fellowships will be awarded each year, and will run concurrently with the Academy’s other residential fellowships. Fellows receive a stipend, health benefits, travel allowance, and an office in the Academy.
Candidates must be at the post-doctoral or faculty level. Applications are encouraged from all countries.
Deadline: Monday, 17th April 2017 (11:59 pm, Eastern standard time). Residencies begin September 2017.
Fellows spend four months: either the Fall term (September-December) or the Spring term (January-April). Some scholars are invited to spend the full academic year (September to April).
