The Fung Global Fellows Program at Princeton University

Deadline: November 1, 2013

Scholars from around the world are invited to apply to the Fung Global Fellows Program at Princeton University. 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.

Fellowship Details

  • 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 and discussion 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.


1. Applications are invited from scholars who have received their PhD (or the equivalent of an Anglo-American PhD) within 10 years of the proposed start date of the fellowship. For a fellowship beginning in Fall 2014, applicants must have received their degree no earlier than September 1, 2004.

2. Applicants must hold a position outside the United States of America at the time of application, to which they are expected to return at the conclusion of the fellowship.

3. Fellowships will be awarded to candidates who have already demonstrated outstanding scholarly achievement and exhibit unusual intellectual promise but are still at the beginning of their careers.

4. US citizens and noncitizens, regardless of race, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age, marital status, or disability, are eligible to apply.

5. Fellows must be in residence in Princeton during the academic year of their fellowship so that they can interact with one another and participate actively in the program’s seminars and other events on campus. Fellows are also expected to present their ongoing projects in seminars organized by the program.
