Fung Global Fellows Program
Princeton University, United States





Scholarship / Financial aid: six scholarships offered yearly

Date: 1 year

Deadline: November 1, 2012

Open to: scholars from around the world


Announcement follows

The Fung Global Fellows Program reflects Princeton University’s commitment to engaging with scholars from around the world and inspiring ideas that transcend borders. The program brings exceptional international early-career faculty members working in the social sciences and the humanities to Princeton for a year of research, writing, and collaboration. It is administered by the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies, which serves as a site for integration and joint activity across all of the University's international and area programs.


About the Program

Each year, the Fung Global Fellows Program will select six scholars from around the world to be in residence at Princeton for one academic year and to engage in research, writing, and collaboration around a common theme. The program includes a public seminar series where the fellows will present their work to the University community. Fellowships will be awarded through a competitive application process to scholars employed outside the United States who have demonstrated outstanding scholarly achievement, exhibit unusual intellectual promise, and are still early in their careers.

This program is supported by a gift from William Fung, group chairman of Li & Fung, a Hong Kong-based multinational group of export and retailing companies. Fung earned a BSE in electrical engineering from Princeton in 1970 and an MBA from the Harvard Graduate School of Business in 1972, and then began his career at the family firm. He joined Princeton's Board of Trustees in 2009, and has previously supported Princeton's groundbreaking financial aid program. "In this new age of globalization, Princeton should be even more involved in fostering scholarship everywhere it takes place," Fung said. "Through this gift, I hope to enable Princeton to become a stronger catalyst for developing new and exciting research and for creating international scholarly communities."


Eligibility

The Fung Global Fellows Program welcomes applications from scholars who have received their Ph.D. (or the equivalent of an Anglo-American Ph.D.) within 10 years of the proposed start date of the fellowship. For a fellowship beginning in fall 2013, applicants must have received their degree no earlier than September 1, 2003.

_The receipt of the Ph.D. is determined by the date on which all requirements for the degree at the applicant’s home institution, including the defense and filing of the dissertation, were fulfilled.
_Applicants must hold a position outside the United States of America at the time of application and are expected to return to that institution at the conclusion of the fellowship.
_Fellowships will be awarded to candidates who have demonstrated outstanding scholarly achievement and exhibit unusual intellectual promise but are still at the beginning of their careers. Criteria for the fellowship include the strength of the candidate’s research projects, the relationship of those projects to the program’s theme, the candidate’s previous scholarly work, the candidate’s ability to contribute to the intellectual life and intellectual exchange of the program, and the candidate’s work experience outside the United States. The selection committee is looking to establish a cohort of fellows whose research represents diverse analytical approaches and addresses a wide variety of periods and places. The Fung Global Fellows Program has a particular interest in fostering innovative interdisciplinary approaches.
_US citizens and noncitizens, 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 so that they can attend weekly seminars and other events on campus. Fellows are also expected to present a paper from their ongoing projects at one of the sessions of the weekly seminar.


Application

The application deadline for the 2013–14 Fung Global Fellows Program is November 1, 2012. Apply Online .

Interested scholars whose research engages with the theme “Languages and Authority” and who meet the eligibility criteria as outlined below are invited to submit their application online by November 1, 2012.
