Apply for the Princeton University Fung Global Fellows Program 2024-25 for Early-career scholars Worldwide!

The deadline for applications for the 2024-25 academic year is November 15, 2023.

About the Princeton University Fung Global Fellows Program

Princeton University is pleased to announce the call for applications to the Fung Global Fellows Program at the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies (PIIRS). The Fung Global Fellows program will select early-career scholars from around the world to be in residence at Princeton for an academic year (10 months) and to engage in research and discussion around a common theme.

The fellowships will be awarded to scholars employed outside the United States who have a faculty appointment, a professional research appointment, or are an established independent scholar. They will also be expected to return to their positions at the conclusion of the fellowship. Lastly, they must have demonstrated outstanding scholarly achievement and unusual intellectual promise. The Fung Global Fellows program Early-career scholars will be appointed at the rank of Visiting Research Scholar.

During the academic year 2024-25, the Fung Global Fellows program theme will be “Colonial Residues.” Colonialism is frequently evoked today as a root cause of global inequity or, in some jarring instances, nostalgic celebration. In both the “new” states and the “old” ones that reluctantly let them go, colonialism’s many impacts are ubiquitous-its traces often tangible and measurable, shaping political regimes and socioeconomic wellbeing while also determining whose stories are told and by whom; whose achievements are celebrated and how; and whose resources are used, removed, or polluted.

We invite applications from scholars whose work expands our understanding of this phenomenon. Applicants may address any region of the world, past and present, and may be from any disciplinary background in the humanities and social sciences. The hope is that we will enable a truly exceptional set of international scholars to come together to interrogate today’s colonial residues, asking how they may be apprehended, and if there might not even be scalable solutions for our common future.
