Distinguished Fellowship Program

Program Description

The Advanced Research Collaborative of The Graduate Center of the City University of New York
Distinguished Fellowship Program

The Advanced Research Collaborative (ARC) of the Graduate Center invites applicants for Distinguished Fellowships in the Humanities, Social Sciences, and Theoretical Sciences for the 2014 – 2015 academic year. Applicants should have outstanding records of published research and scholarship. For the academic year 2014-2015, preference will be given to scholars working in the areas of Immigration, Inequality and the Digital Humanities but applicants working in the areas listed below are also welcome to apply:

Social and Economic Inequality Globalization
Immigration Theoretical Sciences
Digital Humanities Religion
Science Studies American Studies

Distinguished Fellows are provided with office space, a computer, and access to the Graduate Center’s academic infrastructure. Depending on their category of membership (see below), they will also receive either a stipend or teaching release. In return, they are expected to carry out their work regularly at the Graduate Center, which is located in Midtown at 365 Fifth Avenue, and to participate in the intellectual and academic community of ARC and the Graduate Center. In practice, this means using their office on a regular basis, attending ARC events, giving presentations to a seminar and/or a public audience, sharing work-in-progress with doctoral students and mentoring them in a research praxis seminar and individual sessions organized for this purpose.

Distinguished Fellowships fall into three categories:

  • Distinguished Visiting Fellows: for scholars and researchers who are not employed by the City University of New York. A Distinguished Visiting Fellow will receive a stipend of $72,000 for two semesters or $36,000 for one semester.
  • Distinguished CUNY Fellows: for tenured faculty at one of the campuses of the City University of New York. A Distinguished CUNY Fellow will receive three course releases per semester for a maximum of two semesters.
  • Distinguished GC Fellows: for tenured faculty of the Graduate Center. A Distinguished Graduate Center Fellow will receive one course release per semester for a maximum of two semesters.
