Applicants must have completed their J.D., Ph.D., or equivalent degree prior to the beginning of the fellowship. ISP Resident Fellows are expected to write at least two academic works per year, to attend all ISP events, be present in the ISP facilities three full days per week, and to contribute to ISP programming. ISP Resident fellows are strongly urged to reside in the New Haven area.
ISP-funded Resident Fellowships normally begin on July 1 and last for one year; fellows in residence may apply for a second year of support. Fellows receive a salary of USD $50,004 per year plus Yale benefits, a travel stipend, and office space at the ISP.
The ISP also offers self-funded Resident Fellowships for individuals with their own sources of funding—for example, winners of Fulbright or other fellowship awards. The application requirements are identical. Please indicate the sources of funding in your application.
Applications should include the following:
- A cover letter indicating your interest in the Resident Fellowship
- A research agenda (5 pages max)
- A resume or CV
- A law/graduate school transcript
- At least one scholarly writing sample (in English)
- Two letters of recommendation
Applications for ISP-funded Resident Fellowships must be received no later than January 2, 2020. Applications for self-funded Resident Fellowships are accepted on a rolling basis.
Please submit applications in electronic form to Ann-Marie Cooper.
