LIMITED SUBMISSION OPPORTUNITY: Andrew Carnegie Fellows Program - $200K Fellowship Award
The Carnegie Corporation of New York, a foundation dedicated to promoting the advancement and diffusion of knowledge and understanding, recently invited Princeton to submit nominations for their Andrew Carnegie Fellows Program.
The program provides a $200,000 fellowship award to junior, emerging, or senior scholars, journalists, and public intellectuals in the humanities and social sciences who are pursuing research on the challenges facing U.S. democracy and/or international order in the next 25 years. Support is provided specifically to enable recipients to take sabbaticals of up to a year from their institutions in order to focus on their research. Please note that all funds will be awarded directly to the individual (not to their institutions; therefore, there may be tax implications associated with the award). To be eligible, candidates must be U.S. citizens or have permanent residency status. For more information regarding research topics suggested by the foundation, please follow this link: https://deptbedit.princeton.edu/cfr/events/docs/Carnegie-Topics.docx
This is a limited submission opportunity in which all candidates must be nominated by the University. The Academic Planning Group will review all internal applications and select the candidate(s) who will be formally nominated.
Deans/Chairs may nominate qualified candidates by emailing the following materials in a single PDF document (in the order outlined below) to email@example.com on or before NOON on Friday, January 30, 2015:
1. A statement of endorsement from the Chair/Dean, which should include a description of the candidate’s qualifications and potential as well as how the project will address current and future challenges facing U.S. democracy and/or international order.
2. A 3-5 page description of the candidate’s proposed research project, including a work plan, approximate time frame, and estimate of budgetary requirements. If there are pre-existing or additional sources of support for this project, please mention them.
3. Nominee’s curriculum vitae.
