The Princeton Society of Fellows - 2010-2013 Fellowship Competition

2010-2013 Fellowship Competition

The Princeton Society of Fellows, an interdisciplinary group of scholars in the humanities, social sciences, and selected natural sciences, invites applications for the 2010-2013 fellowship competition.

THREE three-year postdoctoral fellowships will be awarded this year. The stipend for academic year 2010-11 will be approximately $72,000. Fellows are provided with a shared office, a personal computer, a research account of $5000 a year, and access to university grants, benefits and other resources. Fellows are expected to reside in or near Princeton during the academic year in order that they may participate fully in the intellectual life of the Society.

Interviews will take place in early February 2010. All candidates will be informed of the status of their application by the end of January. The Society will reimburse the cost of travel and lodging associated with the interview. Names of fellowship winners will be posted on the Society of Fellows' website in July 2010.


  • Candidates must have received their Ph.D. degree after January 1, 2007

    NB. The receipt of the Ph.D. is determined by the date on which the candidate fulfills all requirements for the degree at his/her institution, including filing of dissertation with the Graduate School or Registrar of the home institution.

    Those candidates who will not have their Ph.D. by the time they apply but are expected to have fulfilled all conditions for the degree by June 15, 2010, may apply for a postdoctoral fellowship with a letter of degree confirmation from their Department Chair or Director of Graduate Studies.

  • Recipients of doctorates in Education (Ed.D. or Ph.D. degrees), doctorates of Jurisprudence, and holders of Ph.D. degrees from Princeton University are not eligible to apply.
  • Fellowships will be awarded to candidates at the beginning of their academic career, who have already demonstrated outstanding scholarly achievement and excellence in teaching. Their work should also show evidence of unusual promise. The Society has a particular interest in fostering innovative interdisciplinary approaches in the humanities and social sciences.
  • US citizens and non-citizens, regardless of race, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age, marital status, or disability, are eligible to apply.
  • Fellows must reside in or near Princeton during the academic year of their fellowship term.
