The Advanced Research Collaborative of The Graduate Center of the City University of New York
Distinguished Fellowship Program
The Advanced Research Collaborative (ARC) of the Graduate Center invites applicants for Distinguished Fellowships in the Humanities, Social Sciences, and Theoretical Sciences for the 2013 – 2014 academic year. Applicants should have outstanding records of published research and scholarship. In addition to academic distinction, preference will be given to scholars whose interests strengthen the research priorities of ARC in the following areas:
|Social and Economic Inequality||Globalization|
|Science Studies||American Studies|
Distinguished Fellows are provided with office space, a computer, and access to the Graduate Center’s academic infrastructure. Depending on their category of membership (see below), they will also receive either a stipend or teaching release. In return, they are expected to carry out their work regularly at the Graduate Center, which is located in Midtown at 365 Fifth Avenue, and to participate in the intellectual and academic community of ARC and the Graduate Center. In practice, this means using their office on a regular basis, attending ARC events, giving a presentation to a public audience, and sharing work-in-progress with doctoral students in a research praxis seminar organized for this purpose. Fellowships are tenable for one or two semesters during the 2013 – 2014 academic year, which begins on August 27, 2013 and ends on June 30, 2014.
Distinguished Fellowships fall into three categories:
- Distinguished Visiting Fellows: for scholars and researchers who are not employed by the City University of New York. A Distinguished Visiting Fellow will receive a stipend of up to $70,000 for the full academic year or up to $35,000 for a single semester.
- Distinguished CUNY Fellows: for tenured faculty at one of the campuses of the City University of New York. A Distinguished CUNY Fellow will receive three course releases per semester for a maximum of two semesters.
- Distinguished GC Fellows: for tenured faculty of the Graduate Center. A Distinguished Graduate Center Fellow will receive one course release per semester for a maximum of two semesters.
