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.
Residential fellows will be assigned a private study at the Institute for Advanced Study. In exchange, we require that fellows be in residence, present their work in a small seminar or talk sometime during their residency, 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.
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 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.
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.
