Sponsored by the Russel Sage Foundation

The Russell Sage Foundation was established by Margaret Olivia Sage in 1907 for “the improvement of social and living conditions in the United States.” It dedicates itself to strengthening the methods, data, and theoretical core of the social sciences in order to better understand societal problems and develop informed responses. In addition to funding independent academic research and publishing books and a journal under its own imprint, it supports the following fellowships:

Visiting Scholars Fellowship for Academic Year 2023-2024 

Application Deadline: June 28, 2022 (11:59 PM EST)

The Visiting Scholars Program provides a unique opportunity for select scholars in the social, economic, political and behavioral sciences to pursue their research and writing while in residence at the foundation in New York City. The fellowship period is September 1st through June 30th.

The foundation annually awards up to 17 residential fellowships. Visiting Scholars must be at least two years beyond the Ph.D. at the time of application and once selected, typically work on projects related to the foundation’s core programs and special initiatives. Scholars are provided with an office at the foundation, computers and software, library access, and supplemental salary support. Scholars from outside NYC are provided with a partially-subsidized apartment near RSF.

Questions should be directed to James Wilson, Program Director, at [email protected]

Visiting Researcher and Visiting Journalist Fellowships: September 2022 – June 2023 (up to a 5-month visit)

Application Deadline: May 3, 2022

On an occasional basis, RSF has available office space for short-term Visiting Researchers conducting research relevant to RSF’s core programs and special initiatives. These positions do not come with any financial support and are available for visits up to five months, between September 1 and June 30, as space permits. Visiting Researchers are provided with an office at the foundation, computers and software, and library access. Applicants from outside the greater NYC area may be provided with a partially-subsidized apartment near RSF, if available. Visiting Researchers must be several years beyond the PhD and have a project that is relevant to the Foundation’s program areas.

Also, because journalists report on issues of relevance to RSF, the Foundation has established a Visiting Journalist Fellowship. The fellowship provides journalists the time and resources needed to carry out an original project while also offering an opportunity to interact with resident visiting scholars who might help inform the development of these projects. RSF will pay visiting journalists a stipend of $8,000 per month for full-time visits of up to four months (maximum stipend of $32,000 per individual fellowship). Fellows are provided with an office at the Foundation, computers and software, and library access. Applicants who reside outside of the greater New York City area may be provided with a partially-subsidized apartment near RSF, if available. Eligible applicants should be journalists with a minimum of 5-7 years of experience who write or report on social, economic, or political conditions in the United States.
