Call for Applications: Native Scholar Fellowship at SAR
The School for Advanced Research (SAR) in Santa Fe, NM invites applications for its 2016–17 resident fellowships for Native Scholars.
SAR awards 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. One of the awards is restricted to Native Scholars:
Anne Ray Fellowship for a Native scholar with a Master’s or PhD in the arts, humanities, or social sciences to work on their own writing or curatorial research project. This may include research and writing for a future exhibition at an arts or cultural institution. In addition, the fellow will provide mentorship to the two Anne Ray interns working at the Indian Arts Research Center and help guide their intellectual development while facilitating their engagement with other scholars on the SAR campus.
Resident scholars may approach their research from anthropology or from related fields such as history, sociology, art, and philosophy. 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 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.
Deadline for applications is November 2, 2015.
