Institute on Race and Social Division

Visiting Research Fellowships 2001/2002

The Institute on Race and Social Division, a multi-disciplinary research program at Boston University, sponsors teaching, research and public discussion related to economic, political and cultural conflicts among groups defined by race, ethnicity, religious affiliation and linguistic identity.

The Institute invites applications from all disciplines for visiting research fellowships to be awarded for the academic year 2001-2002 to outstanding scholars interested in devoting a year in residence at Boston University to writing on the theme of "race and social division," broadly construed. Fellows are expected to participate in the regular faculty colloquia and research seminars sponsored by the Institute throughout the academic year. Fellows enjoy access to the Boston University libraries, to computer facilities, and to a wide range of activities ongoing in the university community. The major part of their time is devoted to research and writing.

Fellows are selected by the Director and an advisory committee based on the quality of their proposal and its relevance to the purposes of the Institute. Fellows typically have a doctorate or professional post-graduate degree and cannot be in the process of writing a dissertation.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a recent scholarly paper, a statement (of Approximately 1,500 words) describing their project. On a separate sheet, applicants should indicate what support their home institution and other sources are likely to provide, and what support they expect from the Institute. This confidential information will not be presented to the advisory committee. Applicants should arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent directly to the Institute. There is no application form.

The deadline for applications is January 15, 2001, for fellowships beginning September 2001. The names of fellowship recipients will be announced by April 16, 2001.
