The Princeton Society of Fellows in the Liberal Arts, an interdisciplinary group of scholars in the humanities and social sciences, invites applications for the 2023-26 fellowship competition. Five fellowships are to be awarded:
- Two or three Open Fellowships in any discipline represented in the Society
- One Fellowship in Humanistic Studies
- One Fellowship in East Asian Studies
- One Fellowship in Race and Ethnicity Studies
Fellowships will be awarded to applicants in the disciplines represented in the Society who are at the beginning of their academic career. Selection is based on exceptional scholarly achievement and evidence of unusual promise, range and quality of teaching experience, and potential contributions to an interdisciplinary community. The Society of Fellows seeks a diverse and international pool of applicants, and it especially welcomes those from underrepresented backgrounds.
Ph.D. Degree Requirements:
- Applicants already holding the Ph.D. degree at the time of their application must have received their degree between January 1, 2021 and August 2, 2022. Priority will be given to applicants who have received no more than one year of research-only funding past the Ph.D. degree.
- Applicants who are ABD (All But Dissertation) at the time of their application: Applicants who do not meet the August 2, 2022 deadline for receipt of their Ph.D., but are expected to have fulfilled all conditions for the degree by June 15, 2023, including defense and filing of dissertation, may still apply for a postdoctoral fellowship, provided they have completed a substantial portion of their dissertation (at least half).
Further Eligibility Criteria:
- If you have already applied to the Princeton Society of Fellows, you may not apply a second time. It is therefore recommended that applicants wait until they have completed a substantial portion of the dissertation (at least half) before applying.
- Candidates for/recipients of doctorates in Education (Ed.D. or Ph.D. degrees), in Jurisprudence, the DMA, and candidates for/recipients of Ph.D. degrees from Princeton University are not eligible to apply.
Fellows receive a competitive salary and benefits, a $5,000 research account, access to university grants, a shared office, a desktop computer, and other resources.
