Call for Applications: Institute for Ideas and Imagination Faculty Fellowships, Columbia University

October 26, 2018


In order to be eligible to apply, Columbia faculty should indicate their school and departmental affiliation. We welcome group projects although each participant in the group must apply individually and will be considered on his or her own merits. 


The Columbia Institute for Ideas and Imagination, based at Reid Hall in Paris, offers approximately seven full fellowships annually to Columbia faculty. The Institute encourages applications in all disciplines and on any topic from candidates interested in participating in a creative community of scholars, artists, and thinkers. The fellows will each receive $37,500 per term, or $75,000 for a full academic year (September through May), an office at the Institute in Paris, and access to Columbia’s libraries and various research facilities in Paris and in Europe. We welcome projects from those working in any area of the humanities, the humanistic social sciences, and conceptual dimensions of the natural and applied sciences, as well as from visual artists, filmmakers, writers, and other creative thinkers.
