Flexible research fellowships will enable recent PhDs (without tenure and within eight years of the PhD), and with heavy teaching and service responsibilities to carry out research and writing towards a scholarly text. These flexible, short-term awards may be used for access to online archives, travel, conference participation, childcare or other familial responsibilities, as well as other needs identified in the application essay for accomplishing the proposed objectives.
Each flexible fellowship provides a stipend of $15,000 (three months’ work over a period of twelve months). Flexible fellowships do not require leave from university responsibilities, and do not require the three months to run consecutively.
Note: UChicago students planning research or study abroad should review the resources provided in the the UChicago Travel Toolkit and register in UChicagoTraveler to be enrolled in UChicago’s International Travel Emergency Assistance Program.
