Long-Term Visiting Fellows

Overview

Each year distinguished writers, artists and scholars spend a semester visiting at Princeton, teaching one course. Nominations are invited from chairs of humanities departments and may be made jointly with interdisciplinary programs and committees under the Council’s umbrella.

Eligibility

Nominations for visiting Long-Term Fellows are invited from chairs of humanities departments and may be made jointly with interdisciplinary programs. Departments seeking information about nomination procedures should contact Kathleen Crown, executive director.

Long-Term Fellows “in residence” take an unpaid leave from their home institutions and relocate to Princeton for a semester to teach (or co-teach with a current faculty member) one course. Academics who live within commuting distance (eg, NJ, NYC, Philadelphia) are eligible for “commuting” fellowships.

The Council will follow University guidance on hiring and restricted funds, and any appointments and offers would require approval of the Provost and Dean of the faculty.

How to apply

Department nominations consist of a letter from the chair including proposed itinerary, endorsements from other units, and a CV for the visitor.

Application deadline is October 10, 2022.
