I. Scholarships and Fellowships

Visiting Scholars Program
http://www.amacad.org/visiting.aspx
The purpose of the Visiting Scholars Program is to support the work
of
younger public policy analysts, humanists, and social scientists who
show
promise of becoming leaders in their field, especially those who
work on
multidisciplinary topics. The Program offers opportunities for them
to
carry out their individual research as well as to collaborate with
Academy
Fellows on shared scholarly or policy-related interests. It also
helps to
create a national network for scholars in the early stages of their
career, assisting them in their research and professional
development.
Finally, it has established the House of the Academy as an active
research
center for intensive scholarship by individuals from diverse
disciplinary,
institutional, and geographic backgrounds. The VSP is an important
way to
share the Academy's extraordinary intellectual resources, including
many
of America's most distinguished leaders in science, scholarship,
public
affairs, and business and the arts and to invest in the future of
the next
generation.

In addition to providing time for independent research, the VSP
arranges
conferences involving colleagues from the Boston area and beyond.
Visiting
Scholars have the opportunity to join in seminars sponsored by the
Academy's program areas as well as to participate in social
gatherings and
other regularly scheduled Academy activities. Neighboring
universities and
research institutions partner with the Academy in the work of the
Program.

Scholars are chosen by means of a national competition. Most reply
to a
request for proposals circulated via websites and electronic mailing
lists
as well as through targeted mailings to academic departments and
relevant
scholarly councils and associations. Applications are reviewed by
Fellows
expert in the candidates' fields; their recommendations are passed
on to a
final advisory committee that takes into account not only the
quality of
the applications but also the fields, institutions, and geographical
areas
represented by the candidates. Seven/eight scholars and
practitioners are
chosen annually.

Patricia Meyer Spacks, President of the Academy, 2001-2006, and
Edgar F.
Shannon Professor of English, Emerita, University of Virginia,
serves as
chair of the VSP.
Some fifty academic institutions from across the country have become
University Affiliates of the Academy, with a special interest in
developing and supporting the VSP.
The Visiting Scholars Program is undertaken in collaboration with the
Harvard Humanities Center, which provides access to the university's
research facilities and works with the Academy to plan joint
lectures,
seminars, and informal discussions.

Over the past four years, the Visiting Scholars Program has grown in
stature and visibility. Applications have increased 70 percent since
2002.
The outstanding teaching and research appointments the "alumni" have
received, their published and forthcoming books and articles, and
their
enthusiasm about the benefits of the Academy experience reflect the
success of the program.

Folger Shakespeare Library Offers Short- and Long-Term Fellowships
Deadline: Various

The Folger Shakespeare Library ( http://www.folger.edu/ ) in
Washington,
D.C., offers research fellowships to encourage access to its
exceptional
collections and to encourage ongoing cross-disciplinary dialogue
among
scholars of the early modern period. Each year, scholars may compete
for a
limited number of long-term (six to nine months) and short-term (one
to
three months) fellowships.

Long-term fellows are selected by an external committee that
considers the
following criteria in making its selections: importance of the topic;
originality and sophistication of the approach; feasibility of the
research objectives; and the
applicant's need for the Folger collections. The Folger is open to
traditional as well as innovative scholarly methodologies and
agendas. Two Mellon Research Fellowships will be awarded and carry
stipends of $50,000 and $40,000. Three National Endowment for the
Humanities Fellowships will be awarded and carry maximum stipends of
$40,000. NEH Fellowships are restricted to U.S. citizens or to
foreign
nationals who have been living in the United States for at least
three
years. Mellon Postdoctoral Research Fellowships are open to scholars
from
any country. The application deadline is November 1 of the year
preceding
the one in which an applicant plans to take up his or her residency.

Short-term fellowships carry a stipend of $2,000 per month. The
criteria
for success in the annual short-term fellowship compe-
tition are the same as those for long-term fellowships, although the
internal selection committee tends to value need for the
collection above other considerations. Each year the Folger awards
twenty
to thirty short-term fellowships. The application
deadline is March 1 of the year in which an applicant plans to take
up his
or her residency.

Franklin Research Grants
Scope
Since 1933 the American Philosophical Society has awarded small grants
to scholars in order to support the cost of research leading to
publication in all areas of knowledge. In 2006-2007 the Franklin
Research Grants program awarded over $332,000 to 75 scholars, and the
Society expects to make at least that many awards in this year's
competition. The Franklin program is particularly designed to help meet
the costs of travel to libraries and archives for research purposes; the
purchase of microfilm, photocopies, or equivalent research materials;
the costs associated with fieldwork; or laboratory research expenses.

Franklin grants are made for noncommercial research. They are not
intended to meet the expenses of attending conferences or the costs of
publication. The Society does not pay overhead or indirect costs to any
institution. Grants will not be made to replace salary during a leave of
absence or earnings from summer teaching; pay living expenses while
working at home; cover the costs of consultants or research assistants;
or purchase permanent equipment such as computers, cameras, tape
recorders, or laboratory apparatus.

Eligibility
Applicants are expected to have a doctorate or to have published work of
doctoral character and quality. Predoctoral graduate students are not
eligible, but the Society is particularly interested in supporting the
work of young scholars who have recently received their Ph.D. American
citizens and residents of the United States may use their Franklin
awards at home or abroad. Foreign nationals must use their Franklin
awards for research in the United States. Applicants who have received
Franklin grants may reapply after an interval of two years.

Awards
Funding is offered up to a maximum of $6,000 for use in calendar year
2008. Grants are not retroactive.

Grants are payable to the individual applicant. Franklin grants are
taxable income, but the Society is not required to report payments. It
is recommended that grant recipients discuss their reporting obligations
with their tax advisors.

Daland Fellowships in Clinical Investigation
Scope
The American Philosophical Society awards a limited number of Daland
Fellowships in Clinical Investigation for research in the several
branches of clinical medicine, including internal medicine, neurology,
pediatrics, psychiatry, and surgery. The committee emphasizes
patient-oriented research.

Eligibility
The fellowships are designed for qualified persons who have held an MD
or MD/PhD degree for fewer than eight years. The fellowship is generally
intended to be the first post-clinical fellowship; but each case will be
decided on its merits. Preference is usually given to candidates who
have not more than two years of post-doctoral training and research.
Applicants, both U.S. citizens and foreign nationals, must expect to
perform their research at an institution in the United States, under the
supervision of a scientific advisor. Direct contact with patients is
required.

Nomination
Candidates are to be nominated by their department chairman in a letter
providing assurance that the nominee will work with the guidance of a
scientific advisor of established reputation who has guaranteed adequate
space, supplies, etc., for the Fellow. The advisor need not be a member
of the department nominating the Fellow, nor need the activities of the
Fellow be limited to the nominating department. As a general rule, no
more than one fellowship will be awarded to a given institution in the
same year of competition.

Award and Duration
Stipends for the fellowship are $50,000 for the first year and $50,000
for the second year. The term of the fellowship is one year, with
renewal for one year if satisfactory progress is demonstrated. Requests
for renewal are due on the first Friday of January. Payments are made on
July 15 and January 15. The Society provides no funds for institutional
overhead.

The Society expects that essentially 100% of the Fellow's time will be
devoted to research, and the fellowship will constitute salary support.
With the cognizance of the committee, teaching or clinical service of a
limited amount is permitted, and a small portion of the fellowship may
be used for supplies. The committee reserves final decisions until it
has a clear understanding of the Fellow's financial support for the
project, whether in the form of additional salary granted by the
institution at which the Fellow is located or from other fellowships.

Deadline, Notification
Applications for first-year fellowships are due no later than September
1 (the effective deadline in 2007 is Tuesday, September 4). A complete
application includes all materials requested on the form, in the correct
number of copies, AND the 3 confidential letters supporting the
application. It is the applicant's responsibility to verify that all
materials reached the Society on time contacting Linda Musumeci,
Research Administrator, at LMusumeci@amphilsoc.org
<mailto:lmusumeci@amphilsoc.org> or 215-440-3429. A written decision is
mailed to candidates in January.

master's degree candidates, and undergraduates are not eligible.
Applicants who have received Lewis and Clark Fund grants may reapply
after an interval of two years.

Applicants should ask their academic advisor to write one of the two
letters of recommendation, specifying the student's qualifications
to carry out the proposed work and the educational content of the trip.
Budgets should be limited to travel and related expenses, including
personal field equipment.

The competition is open to U.S. residents wishing to carry out research
anywhere in the world. Foreign applicants must either be based at a U.S.
institution or plan to carry out their work in the United States.

When appropriate, the applicant should provide assurances that safety
measures will be taken for potentially hazardous projects. When
necessary, the applicant and his or her supervisor should discuss the
field training that will be provided and the provisions for experienced
supervision.

Awards
Amounts will depend on travel costs, but will ordinarily be in the range
of several hundred dollars up to about $5,000. Grants are payable to the
individual applicant. Lewis and Clark Fund grants are taxable income,
but the Society is not required to report payments. It is recommended
that grant recipients discuss their reporting obligations with their tax
advisors.

Deadline
February 15, 2008, with notification in May, for work in June 2008 and
beyond.

Professional: International Human Rights Internship Program (IHRIP)
Grants 2007-2008

Program Description:
The International Human Rights Internship Program's (IHRIP) mission
and work are based on the belief that human rights activists have
knowledge and skills, as a result of their day-to-day work, that are
important to the success not only of their own work, but the work of
other activists and organizations, whether in their own or in other
countries and regions. The human rights movement--in specific
countries and regions as well as internationally--is strengthened
through the exchange of this knowledge, experience and expertise.

In line with this conviction, IHRIP makes grants available to human
rights organizations in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Latin America,
the Caribbean, East and Central Europe and CIS countries to enable
their staff to undertake professional development exchange projects.

A project can be:
A professional attachment, through which a staff member from an
organization in one country serves as a temporary staff member of a
host organization in another country, acquiring on-the-job training in
a specific area of work or skill.

An on-site training, in which an individual from one country who has
particular experience and expertise in a specific area of work
provides training to the staff of an organization in another country.

A study tour, through which a staff member from an organization learns
more about a specific area of work or about a particular strategy or
approach to work by visiting and consulting with two or more human
rights or human rights-related institutions in one or more other
countries.

N.B. IHRIP gives low priority to support for attendance at courses or
workshops. Proposals for such support will be considered only in cases
where the desired training is narrow in focus and fulfills a clearly
defined institutional need.

Deadline for applications: August 31, 2007; December 31, 2007

Award Amount: A grant covers the travel of the staff member or trainer
as well as a basic living stipend and health insurance for the staff
member (or trainer). Grants vary depending on the location and length
of the project, and typically range from $1,000-10,000.
