The Advanced Research Collaborative (ARC) of The Graduate Center invites tenured and tenure-track scholars both within and outside of CUNY to apply for our Distinguished Faculty Awards.
Preference will be given to scholars conducting research in Inequality, Immigration, Multilingualism & Translation, and Global Cities, but scholars working in other fields, especially in the Humanities, are also encouraged to apply. All applicants should have outstanding records of published research and scholarship.
Distinguished awardees will be provided an office, computer, and access to The Graduate Center’s academic infrastructure. In return, all fellows are expected to carry out their work regularly at The Graduate Center and to participate in its intellectual and academic community of ARC and The Graduate Center. In practice, this means:
- Using their Graduate Center office on a regular basis
- Interacting regularly and sharing their work with other ARC scholars
- Presenting their research at one of the weekly seminars
- Attending the weekly seminars on Thursdays from 4:30-6:30, as well as other ARC events
Distinguished Awards fall into two categories:
- Distinguished Visiting Scholars: for scholars who are not employed by the City University of New York. A Distinguished Visiting Scholar will receive an office, computer, and access to The Graduate Center’s academic infrastructure. Scholars can stay for one or two semesters, or for a shorter period. Depending on the duration of stay, travel costs to and from the fellowship can be reimbursed for the most economical fare only (up to maximum of $3,000) following the submission of the required documentation.
- Distinguished CUNY Fellows: for tenured and tenure-track faculty at one of the campuses of the City University of New York. A Distinguished CUNY Fellow will receive course buyouts up to a maximum of 3 course releases for one semester.
