How to Apply

Fellows will be expected to spend the academic year (generally August 15th through May 15th) 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 ($65,000 for the senior fellow), benefits where eligible, a $3,000 allowance for research and travel expenses, and a publication subvention. 

For full consideration, applicants must submit the following:

* A curriculum vita
* A letter of interest outlining a description of their project and research agenda (two pp. maximum)
* A sample chapter from the manuscript in MS Word
* Three letters of reference from persons who can assess the significance of the work and the ability of the applicant to carry it out

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