The Eisenberg Institute for Historical Studies will award up to two Faculty Fellowships for the 2023-24 academic year. These fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis. They are designed to facilitate faculty research while engaging recipients more directly in institute programs. This fellowship program has been funded by a generous gift from Kenneth and Frances Aftel Eisenberg.
The Faculty Fellowship includes a release from teaching one Department of History course along with a $5,000 research grant. Each Faculty Fellow will also have the opportunity to organize and lead a one-day research workshop to help push forward an important scholarly conversation related to their current work. The Eisenberg will provide up to $10,000 of support for each workshop, along with staff logistical support.
Recipients are expected to actively participate in institute events and may be asked to serve as commentators and/or chairs in Friday Workshop programs. Eisenberg fellows have the opportunity to workshop an article, chapter, or other project with the institute community during their fellowship term.
The application deadline is February 3, 2023. See application (below) for additional details and eligibility.
