Fellows will be expected to spend the 2014-2015 academic year in Dallas and to participate in Clements Center activities.  Each fellow will receive the support of the Center and access to the extraordinary holdings of the DeGolyer Library. Full-year fellowships carry a stipend of $42,500, benefits where appropriate, a $3,000 allowance for research and travel expenses, and a publication subvention. 

Applicants should send a copy of their curriculum vita, a description of their research project, and a sample chapter or extract.  If the sample is from a dissertation, please include the introduction. Applicants must arrange to have letters of reference sent from three persons who can assess the significance of the work and the ability of the scholar to carry it out.
