Princeton University invites applications for Fung Global Fellows Program for the academic year 2016-2017. The theme for the Fung Global Fellows Program will be “International Society: Institutions and Actors in Global Governance. The Fung Global Fellows Program selects six scholars from around the world to be in residence at Princeton for one academic year and to engage in research and discussion around a common theme. The application deadline is November 1, 2015.

Study Subject(s): The theme for the Fung Global Fellows Program will be “International Society: Institutions and Actors in Global Governance.”
Course Level: Fellows will be in residence at Princeton for one academic year and engage in research and discussion around a common theme.
Scholarship Provider: Princeton University, USA
Scholarship can be taken at: USA

Eligibility:
-Eligible are scholars who received their Ph.D. (or the equivalent of an Anglo-American Ph.D.) within 10 years of the proposed start date of the fellowship; i.e., for the 2016-17 program, no earlier than September 1, 2006. The receipt of the Ph.D. is determined by the date on which all requirements for the degree at the applicant’s home institution, including the defense and filing of the dissertation, were fulfilled.
-Applicants must hold a position outside the United States of America at the time of application, to which they are expected to return at the conclusion of the fellowship.
-Fellowships will be awarded to candidates who have already demonstrated outstanding scholarly achievement and exhibit unusual intellectual promise but are still at the beginning of their careers. Criteria for the fellowship include: the strength of the candidate’s research projects, the relationship of those projects to the program’s theme, the candidate’s previous scholarly work, the candidate’s ability to contribute to the intellectual life and intellectual exchange of the program, and the candidate’s work experience outside the United States. The selection committee is looking to establish a cohort of fellows whose work represents diverse analytical approaches and disciplinary backgrounds and addresses a wide variety of places.
-US citizens and non-citizens, regardless of race, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age, marital status, or disability, are eligible to apply.
-Fellows must be in residence in Princeton during the academic year of their fellowship (September 1 – June 30) so that they can interact with one another and participate actively in the program’s seminars and other events on campus. Fellows are also expected to present their ongoing projects in seminars organized by the program.

Scholarship Open for International Students: US citizens and non-citizens employed outside the United States are eligible to apply.

Scholarship Description: Princeton University is pleased to announce the call for applications to the Fung Global Fellows Program at the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies (PIIRS). Each year the program selects six scholars from around the world to be in residence at Princeton for an academic year and to engage in research and discussion around a common theme. Fellowships are awarded to scholars employed outside the United States who are expected to return to their positions, and who have demonstrated outstanding scholarly achievement and exhibit unusual intellectual promise but who are still early in their careers.

Number of award(s): Each year the program selects six scholars from around the world.

Duration of award(s): Fellowship is awarded for one academic year, 10 months from September 1 to June 30, during which the fellow is expected to be in residence.

What does it cover? 
-Within the limits of its resources, it is the intent of the program to provide a salary that equals the base salary paid to a fellow at his or her home institution. In cases where the fellow’s base salary scale is significantly below the norm, salaries may be adjusted upward. Fellows will be eligible for health insurance through the Princeton University benefits plan.
-Fellows have the privileges of a Visiting Research Scholar at the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies (PIIRS). They will receive office space and computer access. The program will assist fellows in finding appropriate furnished housing through the University Housing Office and private landlords. While secretarial assistance is not provided, PIIRS staff may assist with directing fellows to relevant offices and campus services.
-The program will pay transportation costs for each fellow, and his or her spouse or domestic partner and for their child/children, with the following limitations: It will pay for the most economical means of transportation for one roundtrip for the fellow, spouse or partner, and children from and to his or her home institution. Travel funds for spouse or partner and children are restricted to persons accompanying a fellow for a substantial period of time, that is, at least two months. These funds are not intended for dependents taking brief holidays in or outside the United States.
-The program will pay for the shipment of books and papers that are necessary for the continuation of research. Typically, it is not necessary to bring many books, as the university library possesses over five million volumes, and those not in its collection are readily available through interlibrary loan. As fellows are expected to secure furnished lodgings during their period of residency, the program will provide only a relatively limited moving allowance.

Selection Criteria: Fellowships will be awarded to candidates who have already demonstrated outstanding scholarly achievement and exhibit unusual intellectual promise but are still at the beginning of their careers. Criteria for the fellowship include: the strength of the candidate’s research projects, the relationship of those projects to the program’s theme, the candidate’s previous scholarly work, the candidate’s ability to contribute to the intellectual life and intellectual exchange of the program, and the candidate’s work experience outside the United States. The selection committee is looking to establish a cohort of fellows whose work represents diverse analytical approaches and disciplinary backgrounds and addresses a wide variety of places.

Notification: Candidates selected for interviews will be contacted by email by about mid-December. All other applicants will be notified in the spring of 2016, once the selection process has been completed.

How to Apply: The application dossier for the Fung Global Fellows Program consists of seven (7) items. Items 1-6 should be submitted by the applicant. Item 7, the letters of recommendation, need to be submitted by the three referees. The following items should be submitted by the candidate in English:
-Completed online application form
-Cover letter (1.5 pages maximum)
-Curriculum Vitae / Bibliography
-Research proposal (maximum of 3 pages, single spaced)
-One writing sample (article or book chapter, maximum of 50 pages)
-An official letter from the applicant’s employer affirming that, should the fellowship be awarded, the applicant would be permitted to accept it and to spend the academic year 2016-2017 at Princeton University (on the application site, upload this document as “Other 1”). In addition, complete applications must also include:
-Three (3) confidential letters of recommendation in English, uploaded directly by the recommenders to the application website on or before the November 1 application deadline.

Scholarship Application Deadline: The application deadline is November 1, 2015.
