Application Deadline: November 1st 2015
Since 1983, the Kellogg Institute for International Studies has offered visiting fellowships to promote interdisciplinary international research in a supportive community of scholars.
This widely respected residential program offers you time to pursue scholarly inquiry where it takes you, advance your personal research, and collaborate with other scholars and practitioners from across the US and around the globe.
While at the Kellogg Institute, you interact with leading scholars one-on-one and through the Institute’s seminars and lectures, international conferences, roundtable discussions on world affairs, and cultural events.
The facilities at the Hesburgh Center are ideal for scholarly research. Visiting fellows have spacious offices, on-site information technology support, personal library services through a branch of the University’s library, and use of a variety of campus facilities.
Visiting Fellowships include:
- Travel expenses
- Medical insurance benefits
- Partial housing subsidy for the Hesburgh Center Residences or other on-campus housing
We invite applications from scholars and practitioners who conduct international research on our themes of democracy and/or human development. Applicants may come from any country and typically fall into three groups:
- Promising junior and midcareer scholars (typically postdocs and assistant or associate professors)
- Distinguished senior scholars with an established record of scholarly excellence
- Accomplished policy makers, journalists, and other practioners whose knowledge and experience can link policy and scholarship
Most successful applicants will hold a PhD or equivalent degree in a social science discipline or in history.
- In exceptional cases, the Institute will support applicants with a PhD or its equivalent in other disciplines.
- The Institute welcomes applications from eminent scholars and practioners who do not hold a PhD.
- Advanced ABD graduate students may apply, but awards are contingent on their having completed the PhD before beginning the fellowship.
