SAR 2017-2018 Resident Scholar Fellowships Offered
The School for Advanced Research will begin accepting applications for 2017-2018 Resident Scholar fellowships on September 1, 2016
Nine-month Resident Scholar Fellowships are awarded to scholars who have completed their research and analysis in the social sciences, humanities, Latino/a Studies, and Native Studies and who need time to reflect, debate, and write. Fellowships are awarded annually by the School for Advanced Research (SAR) to five or 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.
The tenure runs from 9/1/17 to 5/31/18 and includes a stipend and low-cost housing.
The deadline for application is November 7, 2015.
Founded in 1907, SAR is a residential center focused on the cultivation of innovative research in anthropology, broadly defined, as well as the work of Native American artists and writers. SAR offers residential fellowships to scholars and Native American artists through a competitive process. We host research seminars for scholars undertaking comparative, historically informed research that addresses critical issues of human social life. SAR’s Indian Arts Research Center (IARC) stewards and makes available to scholars and artists one of the world’s finest collections of Native American art from the Southwest. SAR Press publishes path-breaking books in anthropology, archaeology, Indigenous studies, and Native American art. The Catherine McElvain Library provides access to a significant collection of anthropological works and archival material related to Santa Fe history.
