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
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.
