The Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study offers residential fellowships for periods ranging from three weeks to a full academic year (fall and spring semesters, August through May). Fellowships range up to a maximum of $60,000 per academic year (up to a maximum of $30,000 per semester) or pro-rated amounts for shorter periods. In addition, fellows who do not reside in the greater Michiana area are provided with housing located adjacent to the University during their fellowship. Applicants who require additional support should seek supplementary funding in the form of external grants or sabbatical or other contributions from their home institutions.
Fellowships include a $1,000 research account, private office in the Institute, a computer and printer, access to University libraries and other facilities, regular Institute lunches and seminars, and housing. The Institute does not provide medical insurance to fellows; appropriate individual arrangements must be made for coverage during the fellowship period. Additional information about medical insurance is available on the Information for Incoming Fellows page.
While in residence, fellows are invited to actively participate in the intellectual and cultural community at Notre Dame. Additionally, there are many opportunities to engage with colleagues and scholars from the University of Notre Dame, from universities in Chicago and nearby, and with guest speakers through the Institute’s additional events.
The Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study is a residential institute that values collegial interaction and a vibrant intellectual exchange on major issues and questions of value. The greatest advances do not occur in solitude, but in the company of others who share a passion for advancement and are open to dialogue and collaboration.
In addition to pursuing their research, faculty fellows are expected:
- To remain in residence at the University during their fellowship;
- To attend the Institute’s regular lunches;
- To participate in the weekly presentation of fellows’ research and periodic seminars hosted by the Institute;
- To contribute intellectually to an engaging and cooperative community of scholars at the Institute; and
- To make an intellectual contribution to the University, usually through some type of scholarly interaction with an academic department or Institute event. Determination of this contribution will occur with the Director of the NDIAS after fellows have been selected.
