One six-month fellowship is available for a female social scientist from a
developing nation, either
pre- or post-doctoral, whose work addresses women's economic and social
empowerment in that nation.

The goal of the program is twofold: to advance the scholarly careers of
women social scientists from the developing world, and to support research
that identifies causes of gender inequity in the developing world and that
proposes practical solutions for promoting women's economic and social

The fellowship is expected to start on September 1, 2010 and run through
February 28, 2011.

In addition to a $4,500/month stipend, and housing and office space on the
SAR campus, the Campbell Fellow receives travel, shipping, and library
resource funds; health insurance; and the support of a mentoring committee
of established scholar-practitioners.

The following criteria guide SAR's selection of the Campbell Fellow:

* Citizenship: Applicants may not be U.S. citizens or permanent residents
and must be a national of a developing country that is currently eligible to
borrow from the World Bank (see http://go.worldbank.org/S2ADVPZVX0 for the
current list of eligible countries).

* Academic Discipline: Applicants should be pursuing research in one of the
social sciences:
anthropology, economics, education, geography, history, law, linguistics,
political science, psychology, social work, or sociology, or in an
interdisciplinary field that incorporates two or more of these disciplines.

* Research Topic: Projects that identify causes of and/or solutions to
gender inequity in the developing world, and thus contribute to women's
social and economic empowerment, will be favored. Sample topics include
education and socialization of girls; globalization and the economic status
of women; policies and practices toward family, reproduction, and women's
health; impacts of international and civil conflict on women; women's roles
in resolving such conflicts or sustaining civil society; media
representations of women and the formation of ideologies of gender; the
practice and process of gender-based development; and women in science and
SAR will select fellows on the strength of their clearly stated intention to
serve their communities and countries of origin.

* English Fluency: To facilitate full engagement in the SAR intellectual
community, applicants must demonstrate their fluency in English, such as
through their record of professional interaction in written and spoken
