Visiting Scholars Program
The 2012-2013 Visiting Scholars
The Visiting Scholars Program is open to postdoctoral scholars and junior faculty
in the humanities and social sciences who work on topics in American history, culture,
and public policy from the founding period to the present.
Junior faculty receive up to $60,000 for the academic year (usually the equivalent
of one-half salary); postdoctoral students receive up to $40,000. Candidates who
are completing scholarly manuscripts are especially welcome. Visiting Scholars have
the opportunity to participate in conferences, seminars, and events at the Academy
while advancing their scholarly research. The Academy provides office space and
computer services at its Cambridge headquarters as well as library privileges in
cooperation with the Mahindra Humanities Center at Harvard University.
