Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) - Fellowships in Academic Libraries
Radical changes in the information landscape are transforming traditional academic roles and the roles of libraries within the academy. This program prepares a new generation of librarians, scientists, and scholars for work at the intersections of scholarship, teaching and librarianship in the emerging research environment.
National Science Foundation (NSF) - Dear Colleague Letter: NSF Accepting Proposals Related to Hurricane Irma
Through this Dear Colleague Letter, NSF encourages the submission of proposals that seek to address the challenges related to Hurricane Irma. NSF also will support fundamental science and engineering research projects whose results may enable our country to better prepare for, respond to, recover from, or mitigate future catastrophic events. Research proposals relating to a better fundamental understanding of the impacts of the storm (both physical, biological and societal), human aspects of natural disasters (including first responders and the general public), emergency response methods, and approaches that promise to reduce future damage also are welcome.
National Science Foundation (NSF) - Geography and Spatial Sciences Program
The Geography and Spatial Sciences Program (GSS) supports basic research about the geographic distributions and interactions of human, physical, and biotic systems on Earth. Investigators are encouraged to propose plans for research about the nature, causes, and consequences of human activity and natural environmental processes across a range of scales. Projects about a broad range of topics may be appropriate for support if they offer promise of enhancing fundamental geographical knowledge, concepts, theories, methods, and their application to societal problems and concerns.
Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey - Center for Cultural Analysis (CCA) - Postdoctoral Associate Fellowship
For 2018-19, the Center for Cultural Analysis will sponsor five fellowships for Rutgers faculty, five fellowships for Rutgers graduate students, and two Postdoctoral Associate positions for external scholars. The CCA invites applications for fellows affiliated with the 2018–19 Classification seminar. We welcome proposals that investigate classification in intellectual, cultural, and social life from scholars in any field of the humanities and social sciences. Possible areas of inquiry include but are not limited to: cultural taste and social stratification; genre and genre systems; the meaning of media formats; the art/non-art opposition; libraries, universities, and other institutional organizers of culture; "folk" and "expert" taxonomies; the collection of data and control of populations by the state; classification struggle and the problem of the exception.
Society in Science - Branco Weiss Fellowship
The Branco Weiss Fellowship provides a platform for exceptionally qualified researchers, demonstrating a willingness to engage in a dialogue on relevant social, cultural, political or economic issues across the frontiers of their particular discipline. Ideally, fellows pursue unconventional projects in new areas of science, engineering and social sciences. The fellowship was founded in 2002 by the late Swiss entrepreneur Dr. Branco Weiss. It belongs to the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH).
National Science Foundation (NSF) - Dear Colleague Letter: NSF Accepting Proposals Related to Hurricane Harvey
The National Science Foundation (NSF) and its staff are deeply concerned for the people and institutions affected by Hurricane Harvey and its aftermath. Now that the consequences of Hurricane Harvey are upon us, new science and engineering questions are being raised. Through this Dear Colleague Letter (DCL), NSF encourages the submission of proposals that seek to address the challenges related to this storm. NSF also will support fundamental science and engineering research projects whose results may enable our country to better prepare for, respond to, recover from, or mitigate future catastrophic events.
Herzog August Bibliothek - Doctoral and Young Scholars Fellowships
Thanks to the initiatives by private foundations (Dr. Günther Findel-Stiftung/Rolf und Ursula Schneider-Stiftung) fellowships programmes for doctoral candidates have been established at the Herzog August Bibliothek. These programmes are open to applicants from Germany and abroad and from all disciplines. Candidates who already hold scholarships (eg. state or college awards or grants from Graduiertenkollegs) or can apply for a rent subsidy to help finance their stay in Wolfenbüttel.
Council of American Overseas Research Centers (CAORC) - Multi-Country Research Fellowship Program
The Multi-Country Research Fellowship supports advanced regional or trans-regional research in the humanities, social sciences, or allied natural sciences for US doctoral candidates, and postdoctoral scholars. Preference will be given to candidates examining comparative and/or cross-regional research. Applicants are eligible to apply as individuals or in teams. Scholars must carry out research in two or more countries outside the United States, at least one of which hosts a participating American overseas research center.
American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee - Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) Archives Fellowships
The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) is pleased to present its Fellowship program. Five or six fellowships will be awarded each year to deserving scholars engaged in graduate level, post-doctoral, or independent study to conduct research in the JDC Archives, either in New York or Jerusalem. Research topics in the fields of twentieth century Jewish history, general history, and humanitarian assistance will be considered, as well as other areas of academic research covered in the JDC archival collections.
Leibniz Association - Leibniz Institute for Regional Development and Structural Planning (IRS) - IRS Fellowship Programme
Since 2013 the Leibniz Institute for Research on Society and Space (IRS) has supported international guest researchers with an institutional scholarship programme in order to finance their stay at the institute. Even in the age of digitalization, excellent research requires personal contact and joint working periods; the IRS Fellowship Programme shall enable this intensive academic collaboration. Research at the IRS is focused on the spatial aspects and contexts of social action. In doing so, spatial phenomena are explored in terms of both processual and historical dimensions using social-scientific methods. The research focuses on the preconditions, interactions, and consequences of spatial development, and how involved actors contribute to these developments by sharing insights and cooperating on processes of innovation.
