The Institute offers up to nine internal Senior Fellowships to UW-Madison tenured faculty members in the College of Letters and Science who are engaged in innovative research in the humanities. Senior Fellows receive four full semesters of leave from teaching and service and may take their leave semesters at any point during a four-year period. Eight Senior Fellowships are awarded on open topics in the humanities; one Race, Ethnicity, and Indigeneity (REI) Senior Fellowship is awarded for research with clear significance for race, ethnicity, and/or indigeneity and ability to provide leadership for other REI fellows. Senior Fellows attend Institute seminars, present their work, sit on selection committees, advise the director, and organize a Burdick-Vary Symposium or other comparable events. Application is by individual or departmental nomination; competitions are announced in the fall as positions become available.
Applications are due January 18, 2013.
