The STRC seeks applications for two, twelve-month-long scholarly or community-engaged Research Fellowships for untenured or mid-career faculty in the humanities for whom extended paid leave and research assistance would provide time to make progress toward publication prior to tenure and/or promotion.

Tenure-line faculty below the rank of Professor working in the humanities whose primary scholarly or creative field engages the histories and/or cultures of people of color (in the United States or in diaspora) are eligible to apply.

Fellows will be granted paid leave from all teaching and service responsibilities and receive two units of summer salary in July and August. Faculty fellows will also receive the support of a graduate student assistant during the two summer months of their fellowship.
