Columbia University - Society of Fellows in the Humanities
The Columbia Society of Fellows in the Humanities, with grants from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the William R. Kenan Trust, will appoint a number of postdoctoral fellows in the humanities for the academic year 2018-2019. Fellows are appointed as Postdoctoral Research Scholars (Mellon Fellows) in the Society of Fellows in the Humanities and as Lecturers in appropriate departments at Columbia University. The one-year Fellowship renews automatically for a second and a third year. In the first year, Fellows teach one course per semester. At least one of these courses must be in the undergraduate ("Core") education program: Contemporary Civilization, Literature Humanities, Music Humanities, Art Humanities, Asian Civilizations, Asian Humanities, or Global Cultures.
National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) - Dialogues on the Experience of War
The National Endowment for the Humanities offers the Dialogues on the Experience of War program as part of its current initiative, Standing Together: The Humanities and the Experience of War. The program supports the study and discussion of important humanities sources about war, in the belief that these sources can help U.S. military veterans and others think more deeply about the issues raised by war and military service. Although the program is primarily designed to reach military veterans, men and women in active service, military families, and interested members of the public may also participate.
Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) - Evidence for Action: Investigator-Initiated Research to Build a Culture of Health
Evidence for Action (E4A), a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, funds research that expands the evidence base needed to build a Culture of Health. Our mission is to support rigorously designed quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods research that yields convincing findings regarding the population health, well-being, and equity impacts of specific policies, programs and partnerships. We are especially interested in research examining the health impacts of programmatic or policy interventions that address factors outside the domain of health care services or public health practice.
National Science Foundation (NSF) - Science, Technology, and Society (STS)
Science, Technology, and Society (STS) is an interdisciplinary field that investigates topics relating to the scientific, technological, engineering and mathematical (STEM) disciplines, including medical science. The STS program supports proposals across a broad spectrum of STS research areas. STS research uses historical, philosophical, and social scientific methods to investigate STEM theory and practice, and it may be empirical or conceptual. Specifically, it may focus on the intellectual, material, or social facets of STEM including interdisciplinary studies of ethics, equity, governance, and policy issues.
Russell Sage Foundation - Immigration and Immigrant Integration Grants
The Russell Sage Foundation (RSF) and the Carnegie Corporation of New York invite proposals for new research that will strengthen the theory, methods and empirical knowledge about the effects of race, citizenship, legal status, and the interplay of politics and policy on immigrant outcomes. Because of limitations in government statistics, researchers are curating and analyzing data from both public and private sources (e.g., specialized surveys, administrative sources from tax, social security and citizenship and immigration services, as well as social media), and collecting their own data to measure the progress of the foreign-born and their children.
Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum - Research Support Grants
The Roosevelt Institute supports a program of small grants-in-aid in support of research on the "Roosevelt years" or clearly related subjects. The Franklin D. Roosevelt Library maintains over 17 million pages of documents, 150,000 audiovisual items, and 50,000 books. Among these materials are the personal papers of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, as well as those of various individuals and organizations associated with the Roosevelts.
Indiana University - Lilly Library Fellowships
The Lilly Library invites applications for visiting fellowships for research in residence in its collections. The Lilly Library is the principal rare book and manuscript library of Indiana University.
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.
European University Institute (EUI) - Fernand Braudel Senior Fellowships
The fellowships provide a framework for established academics with an international reputation to pursue their research at the European University Institute (EUI). Fellowships take place in one of the EUI's four Departments which in turn invite fellows to participate in departmental activities (seminars, workshops, colloquia, etc.). Fellows are encouraged to make contact with researchers sharing their academic interests, may be involved in the teaching and thesis supervision tasks of EUI professors, and associated with one of the research projects being carried out at the EUI.
