Center for Arts in Society Fellowships 2004-2005

Scholars and artists who have received their terminal degree within the last four years in any field of humanistic inquiry or artistic endeavor are invited to apply for an Arts in Society Fellowship, supported by the Center for Arts in Society at Carnegie Mellon University. The purpose of these Fellowships is to provide younger scholars with free time to further their own work in a cross-disciplinary setting, to associate them with a distinguished faculty, and to allow them to contribute to an innovative humanities project recently begun at CMU.

Two Fellows will be appointed to the Center for the Arts in Society for the whole academic year, 2004-2005, and will be awarded a stipend plus a small research grant. He or she will teach one undergraduate course each semester; participate in the work of the Center for the Arts in Society, which sponsors conferences, lectures, and colloquia on various topics; and give one public lecture. The fellow will be expected to be in residence in Pittsburgh during the term of the fellowship. The fellowships will provide a stipend of $25,000 plus a $5000 research grant.

The theme for the year 2004-2005 is "Local Cultures, Global Movements," a theme broadly conceived to draw a range of applications from scholars and artists interested in ways that the arts--visual art, film, literature, dance, theater, etc.?of local cultures are impacted by globalization. We expect the applicant to have some special need for the resources here in Pittsburgh--the Warhol Museum, the Carnegie Museum of Art, the University of Pittsburgh--or the resources at Carnegie Mellon University--for example, a particular colleague, or a specific department.

In addition, we would like you to tell us how you can be of use to us. We expect the fellow to contribute to the development and the creative life of the Center that links the humanities departments in the College for Humanities and Social Sciences (English, History, Modern Languages, Philosophy) with the College of Fine Arts (Architecture, Art, Design, Drama, Music). The Center for Arts in Society was created to bring these two colleges closer together. Finally, we would also like you to propose courses that will appeal to students spread across the diverse disciplines listed above. In order to learn more about the Center for Arts in Society, and departments within the two colleges, please look at the Center for Arts in Society Web page: http://hss.cmu.edu/cas/.

Candidates for the Fellowship should submit the following documents (there is no official application form):
• a statement of current research interests as they relate to the Fellowship theme and research opportunities in Pittsburgh and at Carnegie Mellon.
• a one-page proposal for a one-semester undergraduate course related to at least two disciplines---one in the "Arts" and one in the Humanities
• a full curriculum vitae
• at least three letters of recommendation

KENNAN INSTITUTE SHORT-TERM GRANTS (up to one month's duration)

The Kennan Institute offers Short-term Grants to scholars whose research in the social sciences or humanities focuses on the former Soviet Union (excluding the Baltic states), and who demonstrate a particular need to utilize the library, archival, and other specialized resources of the Washington, D.C., area. Policy-relevant research is preferred. Academic participants must either possess a doctoral degree or be doctoral candidates who have nearly completed their dissertations. For non-academics, an equivalent degree of professional achievement is expected.

Short-Term Grants provide a stipend of $100 per day. The Kennan Institute cannot provide office space or computers for Short-Term Scholars. Travel and accommodation expenses are not directly covered by this grant. There is no official application form for Short-Term Grants. The applicant is requested to submit a concise description (700-800 words) of his or her research project, a curriculum vitae, a statement on preferred dates of residence in Washington, D.C., and two letters of recommendation specifically in support of the research to be conducted at the Institute. All of these materials may be submitted via e-mail except for the letters of recommendation. The letters should be sent, with signature, either by fax or by post. Applicants should also note their citizenship or permanent residency status in their materials. Applications should be submitted in clear dark type, printed on one side only, without staples.

Grant recipients are required to be in residence in Washington, D.C., for the duration of their grant. Four rounds of competitive selection for Short-Term Grants are held each year. Closing dates are December 1, March 1, June 1, and September 1. Applicants are notified of the competition results roughly six weeks after the closing date. U.S. citizens, permanent residents, and non-Americans are eligible for Short-Term Grants, although funding for non-American applicants is limited. Awardees who are not U.S. citizens or permanent residents must come on a J-1 visa sponsored by the Institute in order to collect their stipend. Approximately one in three American applicants and one in six non-American applicants are awarded Short-Term Grants in each of the four competition rounds.

The Short-term Grant Program is supported by the Russian, Eurasian, and East European Research and Training Program of the U.S. Department of State (Title VIII) and the Kennan Institute endowment. Continuation of the Short-Term Grant Program in 2004-2005 is contingent on future funding.
