Behavioral Sciences Fellowships

Scholarship » Fellowship Opportunities » Academic Programs

The Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University (CASBS) invites applications for residential fellowships during the academic year.

CASBS offers a residential postdoctoral fellowship program for scientists and scholars from this country and abroad.

Since 1954, CASBS fellowships have been awarded to scholars working in a diverse range of disciplines.

These include the five core social and behavioral disciplines of anthropology, economics, political science, psychology and sociology.

Professional Qualifications:

  • Applicants with a Ph.D., professional degree (e.g., J.D., M.D.) or equivalent foreign degree are eligible to apply.
  • Applicants who have achieved an equivalent level of professional reputation will also be considered.

    Faculty at all academic levels or independent scholars may apply, provided they exhibit a high level of achievement (adjusted for rank) including a strong record of research publications.

    CASBS encourage applications from ethnic minorities, women, international scholars, and scholars from less research-oriented colleges and universities.

    Although excellence in research and accomplishments (for career stage and circumstance) are necessary qualifications, they are not sufficient.

    CASBS is seeking Fellows who will be both influential with and open to influence by their colleagues in the diverse multidisciplinary cohort we compose for a given year.

    The expectation for the CASBS Fellowship experience is that the work will be transformed as a result of interactions with other Fellows.

    Fields of Research:

    In addition to scholars working in fields of the behavioral and social sciences, scholars in the natural sciences, the humanities, the arts, the professions, and public life are considered for fellowships when their work has human behavioral and social dimensions that complement and influence the work of classmates.

    An appropriate stipend for the academic year will be awarded to supplement faculty sabbatical support.

    Application Deadline: March 3. For more information and scholarship applications, see: Behavioral Sciences Fellowships.
