The Residential Fellows Program aims to promote intellectual community and foster new perspectives through day-to-day contact among fellows who bring different disciplinary and methodological perspectives to their work.
Residential fellows will have to opportunity to use a private study at the Institute for Advanced Study, and they will attend IAS-sponsored lectures and seminars. Upon completion of the fellowship, fellows may be asked to prepare a brief report regarding the progress made during the fellowship period.
The IAS currently offers two categories of one-semester residential fellowship:
- Without Course Release: A fellowship for those who are on leave or have received a major non-IAS fellowship or grant.
- With Course Release: A fellowship with course release for faculty members in core College of Arts & Sciences departments and the School of Education 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.
The objective of this program is to provide faculty members with a semester without teaching or other major administrative responsibilities. If your configuration of duties means that you can only take one course release in a semester, please contact us. Exceptions will be considered under extenuating circumstances.
