The Office of Research and Technology Management is accepting applications for nomination to the Andrew Carnegie Fellows Program. Case Western Reserve University can nominate two researchers for this high caliber program.
The purpose of the Andrew Carnegie Fellows Program is to support high-caliber scholarship in the social sciences and humanities, making it possible for the recipients to devote time to research and writing that addresses pressing issues and cultural transitions affecting us at home and abroad.
The program will provide fellowships of $200,000 to thirty-five exceptional scholars, journalists, and public intellectuals.
Nominations are evaluated by the jury based on the following criteria:
- Originality and promise of the idea,
- Quality of the proposal,
- Potential impact on the field,
- Record of the nominee, and
- Plans to communicate findings to a broad audience.
EVERY YEAR THE FOUNDATION CHANGES ITS TOPICS OF INTEREST. THIS POSTING WILL UPDATED WHEN THE RFP IS AVAILABLE (USUALLY SEPTEMBER).
Last year, there were four broad topic areas that included a wide range of suggested subtopics:
- Strengthening U.S. democracy and exploring new narratives,
- Technological and cultural creativityâ€”potential and perils,
- Global connections and global ruptures, and
- Environments, natural and human.
All recipients must be U.S. citizens or have permanent U.S. residency status. Nominees should bear in mind that individual fellowships will not be awarded to support dissertations, debt repayments, lobbying efforts, the purchase of equipment, or rent. Fellowships may be used to support such expenses as salary, fringe benefits, project-related travel, research assistants, and translators.
