These Fellowships are intended for scholars on sabbatical leave at their home institutions or with extramural funding or other outside support, though for the 2024-25 academic year, the Institute is able to provide a monthly stipend of $2,000 for junior scholars visiting without sabbatical or extramural funding of their own.
All Fellows receive cost-free housing in an NYU studio apartment and round-trip travel to and from New York, and are provided with a private office and modest administrative support during their residency at the Institute. At NYU, Remarque visiting fellows have access to NYU library and other university resources and privileges.
We are particularly interested in applications from individuals whose work will be significantly enabled by a period of residency at the Institute. Normally, fellowship applicants must have a PhD in hand at the time of the start date of their fellowship at the Remarque Institute.
While our housing is intended for visiting scholars, we do offer a limited number of fellowships per semester to those currently residing in New York, which include office space, NYU affiliation, and some administrative support.
The two semester periods correspond to NYU's academic calendar. Fellows are expected to be in residence, and involved at Remarque Institute events, throughout the Fellowship, though brief research trips are permitted.
The application deadline for the 2024-2025 academic year is January 10, 2024.
A complete application consists of the following:
* completed application form
* complete and up-to-date curriculum vitae
* 3 to 5 page description of the current research
* names of two references
* these references must submit letters through our reference submission manager.
Accepted fellows seeking stipendary support will be asked to provide a brief letter from their department chair (or lead reference, if not applying from a department) confirming whether they will be coming sabbatical funding or other fellowship funding in order to determine eligibility.
