The Center offers a residential fellowship program for scholars from this country and abroad. Since 1954, CASBS fellowships have been awarded to scholars working in a diverse range of disciplines. These include the five core social and behavioral sciences (anthropology, economics, political science, psychology, and sociology) as well as a wide range of humanistic disciplines, education, linguistics, communications, and the biological, natural, health, and computer sciences. CASBS is a collaborative environment. We aim to bring disciplines into contact with each other-to broaden scholars beyond their specialized training. We seek fellows who will be both influential with, and open to influence by, their colleagues in the diverse multidisciplinary cohort we assemble for a given year.
Eligibility: The ideal candidate for a CASBS fellowship is a highly accomplished academic (relative to career stage) — a major thinker whose work is consistently excellent, innovative, important, and influential. Specifically, the qualified applicant:
- Has a PhD, professional degree (e.g., JD, MD), an equivalent foreign degree, or has achieved an equivalent level of professional reputation.
- Is three to four years past the doctorate or equivalent degree. (CASBS does not offer post-doctoral fellowships.)
- Is an academic faculty member—or an independent scholar—who exhibits a high level of achievement (adjusted for rank), including a strong record of research publications.
- Is engaged in significant lines of research in a field of the behavioral/social sciences, or does work in the natural sciences or humanities that have important human behavioral and social dimensions.
- Communicates clearly in English.
- Is someone who is very interested in participating in regular interdisciplinary conversations.
- Is willing to commit to being in residence for the course of the fellowship year without conflicting commitments.
Scholarship value: As appropriate, stipends for the academic year will be awarded to supplement faculty sabbatical support; a significant portion of the fellow’s total support is generally provided by sabbatical funds and external funding from awards and grants secured by the fellow. Except in unusual circumstances, Center stipend support is contingent on the applicant’s provision of firm assurances of matching funds. Depending on available funds, the Center provides stipends according to the following principles:
- A Center stipend is based on the fellow’s academic salary for the year before residence.
- That stipend cannot exceed one-half of the fellow’s academic year (nine-month) base salary for that year and is additionally subject to an upper limit set by the CASBS Board of Directors.
- The cap is currently set at $70,000.
- The sum of the fellow’s salary from a home institution and a Center stipend may not exceed the fellow’s base academic salary for the fellowship year.
- Fellows receive their stipend payments directly; the Center cannot assign a fellow’s stipend to a third party or institution.
