Event Details

End: November 30, 2023
More Info:

Early Career Research Fellowships offer support for research and writing in Buddhist Studies for pre-tenure scholars who hold the PhD degree, with priority given to those teaching full time. 

These fellowships provide scholars time free from teaching and other responsibilities to concentrate on research and writing for the project proposed.  Priority will be given to unemployed or underemployed scholars; emeriti are not eligible. The fellowship period may last up to nine months, during which time no teaching, commissioned research on other topics, or administrative duties are allowed. The fellowship may be separated into two periods, each of which must be a minimum of three months. If the duration is less than nine months (minimum of six months), the stipend will be prorated.

There are no restrictions as to the location of the work conducted. Each applicant must identify a significant scholarly product (monograph, series of journal articles, etc.) that will result from the fellowship. At the end of the fellowship tenure, a final report will be due describing progress made. Fellows will be asked to report to ACLS any publications based on their fellowship work, when they are published.

When accepting a stipend, the Fellow must confirm being officially released from teaching, commissioned research, administrative duties, or other employment during the entire fellowship period.

An Early Career Research Fellowship may be held concurrently with other fellowships or grants and with sabbatical pay, but the total received should not exceed 125% of the Fellow’s academic annual salary. There is no additional financial support for dependents.
