The William P. Clements Center for Southwest Studies welcomes applications for residential research fellowships. Clements Center Research Fellowships provide senior or junior scholars with an essential element for producing successful books, and that is time.
Fellowships are normally for a full academic year but we also welcome applications from scholars interested in a half-year fellowship. Competition is open to individuals in any field in the humanities or social sciences doing research on Southwestern America or the U.S.-Mexico borderlands. The fellowships are designed to provide time for senior or junior scholars to bring book-length manuscripts to completion. One of the fellowships, funded by the generosity of the Summerlee Foundation, supports work on Texas history. The fellowships cannot be used to complete a dissertation.
Fellows will be expected to spend the 2012-2013 academic year or single semester at SMU and to participate in Clements Center activities. Each fellow will receive the support of the Center and access to the extraordinary holdings of the DeGolyer Library. Full-year fellowships carry a stipend of $40,000, benefits where appropriate, a $3,000 allowance for research and travel expenses, and a publication subvention. Single-semester fellowships will receive a $20,000 stipend, benefits where appropriate, a $1,500 research allowance, and a publication subvention. Full-year fellows have the option of teaching one course during the duration of the fellowship for an additional stipend.
