William P. Clements Center for Southwest Studies Residential Fellowships for Junior and Senior Scholars
Fellows will be expected to spend the academic year in Dallas and to participate in Clements Center activities.
Each fellow will receive the support of the Center and access to the extraordinary holdings of the DeGolyer Library. Full-year fellowships carry a stipend of $45,000, benefits where appropriate, a $3,000 allowance for research and travel expenses, and a publication subvention.
Fellowships are for a full academic year. Competition is open to individuals in any field in the humanities or social sciences conducting research on Texas, the American Southwest (including California in all periods), or the U.S.-Mexico borderlands. The fellowships are expressly designed to provide time for junior and senior scholars to bring their book-length projects to completion, and as such do not include any teaching responsibilities or obligations. Please note that our fellowships cannot be used to finish a dissertation or to begin a new book project.
