Excerpts from http://bit.ly/cdtDQ7 -
The Center awards approximately 20-25 residential fellowships annually to
individuals with outstanding project proposals in a broad range of the
social sciences and humanities on national and/or international issues.
Topics and scholarship should relate to key public policy challenges or
provide the historical and/or cultural framework to illuminate policy
issues of contemporary importance.
Each fellow is assigned an office available to him or her every day around
the clock. The Center is located in the heart of Washington, D.C., and
includes conference rooms, a reference library, and a dining room.
The Center tries to ensure that the stipend provided under the fellowship,
together with the fellow’s other sources of funding (e.g., grants
secured by the applicant and sabbatical allowances), approximate a
fellow’s regular salary. Stipends provided in recent years have ranged
from $26,000 to $85,000 (the maximum possible). Stipends include round
trip travel for fellows. If spouses and/or dependent children will
reside with the fellow for the entire fellowship period, money for
their travel will also be included in the stipend.
