How to Apply

Fellows will be expected to spend the 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 $45,000, 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 letter of introduction which should include a description of their research project, and a sample chapter including the introduction to the manuscript.

The fellowship cannot be used to complete a dissertation or begin a new book project.

Additionally, 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.

Applications must be received by Friday, January 19, 2018.
