Faculty Policy and Fellowship Information
Visiting Research Scholar Fellowship for Affiliated NYU Faculty
ISAW will offer, beginning in 2012-13, one fellowship per year for an NYU faculty member working in an area of the ancient world relevant to ISAW’s mission. This fellowship is modeled on the internal fellowships offered by the Humanities Initiative, in that it consists of funding given to the holder’s home department to replace his or her teaching during a semester’s release from teaching duties. During the fellowship period the holder will be expected to be in residence at ISAW and take part in the Institute’s program like other visiting research scholars (see http://isaw.nyu.edu/academics/visiting-scholars for details). The following priorities will govern the award of these fellowships:
1. Faculty with entitlement to a sabbatical or other university leave for one semester will be given priority so as to create a full-year research leave.
2. Faculty who have had a university leave in the year immediately preceding will not be eligible.
3. Untenured faculty will be given priority over tenured.
4. ISAW affiliated faculty will be given priority over others.
A faculty member’s home department must approve the leave on these terms, as must the relevant dean. A letter with these approvals must accompany the application, which should consist of a project description, c.v., and list of three referees prepared to write in support of the application.
