To be eligible for a Junior Fellowship, a candidate must be at an
early stage of his or her scholarly career. Men and women interested
in any field of study are accepted. Most Junior Fellows receive the
Ph.D. just prior to the start of the fellowship. If still pursuing the
Ph.D., Junior Fellows should be at the dissertation stage of their
theses and be prepared to finish their degrees within a year of
becoming fellows. If already a recipient of the degree, they should
not be much more than a year past the Ph.D. at the time the fellowship

Junior Fellows are selected for their resourcefulness, initiative, and
intellectual curiosity, and because their work holds exceptional
promise. They are free to devote their entire time to productive
scholarship. They may undertake sustained projects of research or
other original work, or they may devote their time to the acquisition
of accessory disciplines, so as to prepare themselves for the
investigation of problems lying between conventional fields. Because
of this complete freedom of choice and action, it is important that
candidates should have demonstrated their capacity for independent work.

During 2016/2017 the stipend for Junior Fellows in their first year
will be $74,000. The facilities of most branches of the University,
both for instruction and for research, are open to Junior Fellows.

The deadline for receiving nominations for Junior Fellowships which
begin July 1, 2017, is Friday, August 12, 2016. Further info at
