Fellowships

Each academic year the Center appoints six doctoral student fellows from the Graduate Center, CUNY and six CUNY faculty fellows from throughout CUNY. Fellows are drawn from programs in the social sciences, humanities, and sciences. Faculty fellows receive a two course release for the year of their fellowship (to be distributed across the fall and spring semesters at the discretion of their department), and student fellows receive a stipend of $10,000. ONLY full-time CUNY faculty are eligible for faculty fellowships, and ONLY Level III CUNY doctoral students are eligible for Graduate Fellowships. Deadlines for these fellowships are announced below once they are determined.

You can read abstracts of past fellows’ research here.

You can read about this year’s seminar theme here.

The Center also offers a Post-Doctoral Fellowship position every one to two years (see below). Information on becoming a Visiting Scholar at the Center can be found here.
