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 the College of Arts & Sciences so that the fellow will have one semester free of teaching
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.
