Fellowships are awarded to postdoctoral scholars who have received their degrees from institutions other than Brown within the last five (5) years. Brown University is an EEO/AA employer. The Center strongly encourages underrepresented minority and international scholars to apply.

The term of appointment is July 1, 2019-June 30, 2020. The stipend is $50,000 plus $1,500 for research expenses.
