The Residential Fellows Program aims to promote intellectual community and foster new perspectives through day-to-day contact among fellows who bring different disciplinary questions to the work of their peers.
The IAS currently offers two categories of one-semester residential fellowship:
- A fellowship for those who are on leave or have received a major non-IAS fellowship or grant.
- A fellowship with course release for faculty members in departments of the College of Arts & Sciences so that the fellow will have one semester free of teaching. This does not currently include faculty in the Media School, School of Art, Architecture + Design, or School of Global and International Studies. We are currently working on expanding this program with other schools and will announce additional partnerships when they are established.
Residential fellows will receive a research stipend of $1,000 in addition to the private study. In exchange, we require that fellows be in residence, that sometime during their residency they present their work in progress in a small seminar or talk, and that they attend IAS-sponsored lectures or presentations. Upon completion of the fellowship, fellows will prepare a brief report regarding the progress made during the fellowship period.
