External Award: The Academy of Arts and Sciences - Visiting Scholars Program

The Academy’s Visiting Scholars Program provides residential fellowships to postdoctoral scholars in the humanities and social sciences. The fellowship program offers a collaborative work environment and the opportunity to interact with Academy members. It also creates a national network for these scholars, assisting them in their research and professional development.

Changes to the current program: support now goes to a two-year postdoctoral fellowship, with four awards made each year, and a mentorship program will pair each Visiting Scholar with an Academy Fellow who is an expert in a similar field of study. 

Given these changes, the Visiting Scholars Program will take a one-year hiatus and will not be accepting applications in the Fall of 2016. Applications will be accepted for the next cycle starting in the Fall of 2017.

The stipend level will be $60,000 USD/year, for a two-year fellowship.
