The fellowship runs from mid-June to early August and is open to writers indigenous to the United States or Canada. The fellow is provided with a $6,000 stipend, on-campus housing, studio space, supplies allowance, library support, and travel reimbursement to and from SAR.

The School for Advanced Research (SAR) in Santa Fe, NM invites applications for its 2016 Summer Scholar Fellowships.
SAR awards fellowships each year to several scholars in anthropology and related fields to pursue research or writing projects that promote understanding of human behavior, culture, society, and the history of anthropology. Scholars from the humanities and social sciences are encouraged to apply.
Competitive proposals have a strong empirical dimension, meaning that they address the facts of human life on the ground. They also situate the proposed research within a specific cultural or historical context and engage a broad scholarly literature. Applicants should make a convincing case for the intellectual significance of their projects and their potential contribution to a range of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences.
SAR provides summer scholars a small stipend, a rent-free apartment and office on campus, an allowance account, library support, and other benefits during a seven-week tenure, which starts in mid-June.
Two types of fellowships are available:
- Ethel-Jane Westfeldt Bunting Fellowship. Up to three residential fellowships are available each summer for doctoral level scholars and PhD candidates in the social sciences, humanities, or arts.
- William Y. and Nettie K. Adams Fellowship in the History of Anthropology. One residential fellowship is available each summer for a doctoral level scholar or PhD candidate whose project focuses on the history of anthropology.
Deadline for applications is January 11, 2016.
