The Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies welcomes applications for its 2019-20 in-residence fellowships. The one- and two-semester appointments seek to facilitate the completion and/or publication of academic work related to the Society of Jesus. Applications are now welcomed from scholars in the fields of history, spirituality, and pedagogy, among others. The submission deadline is January 15, 2019.
The Institute offers two types of in-residence fellowships: Institute Fellowships, a year-long appointment (September-May), and Senior Research Fellowships, a semester-long appointment.
The Institute provides individual, furnished housing as part of both fellowships. An Institute Fellowship includes a stipend of $20,000, and the Senior Research Fellowship includes a stipend of $12,000. Additional support for research-related travel during the residency may be available.
Fellowships include personal office space at the Institute and access to the collections in the University’s libraries and those of the colleges and universities in the Boston consortium. Candidates are encouraged to consult the extensive listings of Jesuitica holdings at Boston College prior to submitting their applications. Preference will be given to applicants in the final stages of writing or revising substantive scholarly work.
While in residence at the Institute, fellows will make one presentation of their work each semester. They are encouraged to collaborate with the Institute’s initiatives and programming and with the Institute’s Research Scholars. They are also expected to engage with the wider academic community by attending events and meeting with the University’s faculty members and other visiting scholars. The fellowships are not academic appointments and have no teaching responsibilities.
More information and an application are available at the Institute’s website (bc.edu/iajs).
