New Fellowship for Women Scholar-Practitioners from Developing Nations
The School for Advanced Research (SAR) is pleased to announce the new Campbell Fellowship for Women Scholar-Practitioners from Developing Nations, made possible with a generous three-year grant from new SAR board member Vera R. Campbell’s family foundation.
The Campbell Fellowship will support a female social scientist from a developing nation, either pre- or post-doctoral, whose work addresses women’s economic and social empowerment in that nation. The goal of the fellowship is twofold: to advance the scholarly careers of women social scientists from the developing world, and to support research that identifies causes of gender inequity in the developing world and that proposes practical solutions for promoting women’s economic and social empowerment.
In addition to a stipend, and housing and office space on the SAR campus, the Campbell Fellow receives travel, shipping, and library resource funds; health insurance; and the support of a mentoring committee of established scholar-practitioners. The fellowship term will start on September 1, 2010 and run through February 28, 2011. The application deadline is November 1, 2009. Application instructions are available in the website’s Resident Scholar Fellowship section.
