Resident Scholar Fellowships, The School of 
American Research (SAR)

Application Deadline: November 15, 2006


The School of American Research (SAR) awards six
Resident Scholar Fellowships each year to scholars who
have completed their research and analysis and who
need time to think and write about topics important to
the understanding of humankind. Resident scholars may
approach their research from the perspective of
anthropology or from anthropologically informed
perspectives in such fields as history, sociology,
art, law, and philosophy. Both humanistically and
scientifically oriented scholars are encouraged to

In addition to its traditional fellowships, SAR, in
partnership with the Social Science Research Council
(SSRC), is now offering up to three fellowships per
year in Religion, Science, and Public Life. Social
scientists and humanities scholars who have a Ph.D. at
the time of application are invited to submit
proposals that examine patterns and changes in
religion as they relate to scientific knowledge and
public debate or action in civil society. The program
seeks to create among scholars conversations that will
further historically-informed, interdisciplinary, and
global perspectives on this topic. Fellows will be
expected to coordinate a capstone symposium on this
topic at a 2008 SSRC symposium in New York City.

SAR provides Residents Scholars with an apartment and
office, a stipend up to $40,000, library assistance,
and other benefits during a nine-month tenure, from
September 1 through May 31. SAR Press may consider
books written by resident scholars for publication in
its Resident Scholar Series.

In addition to SAR, several organizations provide
support for the Resident Scholar program: the
Weatherhead Foundation, the Social Science Research
Council, and the Katrin H. Lamon Endowment for Native
American Art and Education.
