Grant of the Week: Institute for Advanced Studies
Every week, Perspectives Daily showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship that has been posted to our free community calendar. This week we are featuring a call for applications from the Institute for Advanced Studies.
The Institute is an independent private institution founded in 1930 to create a community of scholars focused on intellectual inquiry, free from teaching and other university obligations. Scholars from around the world come to the Institute to pursue their research. Scholars may apply for a stipend, but those with sabbatical funding, other grants, retirement funding, or other means are also invited to apply for a non-stipendiary membership.
Open to all fields of historical research, the School of Historical Studies’ principal interests is the history of western, near eastern and Asian civilizations, with particular emphasis upon Greek and Roman civilization, the history of Europe (medieval, early modern, and modern), the Islamic world, East Asian studies, art history, the history of science, and late modern history. Support is also available each year for one scholar in music studies. Each year the School welcomes approximately forty Members. Most are working on topics in the abovementioned fields, but each year the School also selects some scholars working in other areas of historical research. Members in the School are appointed for either one term or for two terms, amounting to a full academic year.
Residence in Princeton during term time is required. The only other obligation of Members is to pursue their research. A Ph.D. (or equivalent) and substantial publications are required.
Institute stipends will normally be offered up to a maximum of $78,000 for the full academic year, or $39,000 for one term.
