The Center offers a residential fellowship program for scholars working in a diverse range of disciplines that contribute to advancing research and thinking in social science. Fellows represent the core social and behavioral sciences (anthropology, economics, geography, history, law, political science, psychology, and sociology) but also the humanities, education, linguistics, communications, and the biological, natural, health, and computer sciences. We are pleased to partner with several entities to provide funding for some residential fellowships.  For 2024-25, Chinese University of Hong Kong, Korean Foundation for Advanced StudiesNational University of SingaporeRiksbankens Jubileumsfond, and Stanford-Taiwan Social Science fellowships will be offered through CASBS.

CASBS is a collaborative environment that fosters the serendipity arising from unexpected intellectual encounters. We believe that cross-disciplinary interactions lead to beneficial transformations in thinking and research. We seek fellows who will be influential with, and open to influence by, their colleagues in the diverse multidisciplinary cohort we assemble for a given year.

We invite applications to join our class of residential fellows for the 2024-25 academic year.  We are particularly eager to receive applications from accomplished scholars and thinkers who engage with the significant societal challenges the Center focuses on, and the research methods that support them. 

Applications and Selection Results

Applications for 2024-25 were accepted through November 3, 2023.

Applicants will be notified of the decision in February 2024.

“It was a strange experience to spend time with a group of talented people, who were all having the best year of their lives.  For Anne Treisman and me our year at the Center (1977-78) was probably the most important of our lives.  We got married that year, and we each finished the most important paper of our careers, Anne’s famous Feature-Integration Theory, and Amos Tversky's and my Prospect Theory.  The hill on which both the Center and NBER are located was also where behavioral economics took shape.  When Richard Thaler (1997-98) heard that Amos and I would be in Stanford, he finagled a visiting appointment down the hill to spend time with us.  We spent a lot of time walking around the Center and became lifelong friends.  Those long conversations and those that Dick had with Amos helped him construct his then-heretical (and now well-established) view of economics, by using psychological observations to explain violations of standard economic theory.”
