Apply for a CASBS Fellowship


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, history, 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 2021-22, Chinese University of Hong Kong, National University of SingaporePresence-CASBS, 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 2021-22 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, described here, and the research methods that support them.

Applications for the 2021-22 fellowship year are being accepted as of September 29, 2020 and will close on November 9, 2020. Check here for more information.

There are many uncertainties for all because of the current pandemic. At this time, we are planning for a residential program in 2021-22.
