Long-term research fellowships will enable recent PhDs (without tenure and within eight years of the PhD) to take leaves from university responsibilities for four to nine months to carry out research and writing towards a scholarly text. During the fellowship tenure, which must consist of consecutive semesters or quarters, Fellows must be on leave from teaching and service. No employment is allowed, so that full time may be devoted to the project.
Each long-term fellowship provides a stipend of $5,000 per month for a minimum of four months and a maximum of nine months. The minimum stipend is $20,000; the maximum is $45,000.
