AAAS Visiting Scholars Program is a fellowship program for post-doctoral fellows and junior faculty to carry out their individual research as well as to collaborate with Academy Fellows on shared scholarly or policy-related interests by attending AAAS in Cambridge, Massachusetts for one year. Award - stipend is $35,000 for postdocs, and up to $50,000 for faculty, and AAAS provides scholars with office space, computer services, library privileges, and information on locating housing. Health benefits can be arranged. Eligibility - Fellowships will be awarded to individuals who can demonstrate that their work will make a substantial contribution in one or more of the Academy's four major research areas: Science and Global Security, Social Policy and American Institutions, Humanities and Culture, and Education.
  2. RAND Transatlantic Post-Doc Fellowship for International Relations and Security provides two years of support for scholars of international relations and security interested in conducting policy-oriented research. Fellowships are granted with a view to preparing Fellows for an international career in policy-oriented research. Fellows have three eight-month stays at research institutions or think tanks participating in the program – at least one on the Eastern, and one on the Western side of the Atlantic. Eligibility - open to candidates who have recently received their doctorate in social and political sciences or economics and whose research focuses on topics of international relations and security.
  3. Radcliffe Institute Fellowship Program is a residential fellowship at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University. Radcliffe Institute fellowships are designed to support scholars, scientists, artists, and writers of exceptional promise and demonstrated accomplishments who wish to pursue work in academic and professional fields and in the creative arts. Award - Stipends are funded up to $60,000 for one year with additional funds for project expenses. Some support for relocation expenses is provided where relevant. If so directed, Radcliffe will pay the stipend to the fellow's home institution. Fellows receive office or studio space and access to libraries and other resources of Harvard University during the fellowship year. Fellows are expected to be free of their regular commitments so they may devote themselves full time to the work outlined in their proposal. Eligibility - Applications are judged on the quality and significance of the proposed project and the applicant's record of achievement and promise.
  4. Russell Sage Foundation Visiting Scholars Program invites a number of scholars to its New York headquarters to investigate topics in social and behavioral sciences. The Foundation particularly welcomes groups of scholars who wish to collaborate on a specific project during their residence at Russell Sage.

Award - up to 20 residential fellowships to selected scholars in the social sciences. The award allows these Visiting Scholars to pursue their research and writing at the Foundation for periods of up to one year. Each scholar is provided with an office at the Foundation, research assistance, computer and library facilities, salary support for the academic year of up to $110,000 when unavailable from other sources and, for scholars outside the greater New York City area, a subsidized apartment nearby the Foundation offices. Eligibility - applicants who are at least several years beyond the Ph.D. The selection of Visiting Scholars is based upon an individual's demonstrated record of accomplishment, the merit of the applicant's proposed project and its relevance to the Foundation's current programs. A special effort is made to include promising younger scholars.
  5. ACLS Frederick Burkhardt Residential Fellowships for Recently Tenured Scholars support long-term, unusually ambitious projects in the humanities and related social sciences.
