Who is Eligible?
We invite applications from scholars and practitioners who conduct international research on our themes of democracy and/or human development. Applicants may come from any country and typically fall into three groups:
Promising junior and midcareer scholars (typically postdocs and assistant or associate professors)
Distinguished senior scholars with an established record of scholarly excellence
Accomplished policy makers, journalists, and other practioners whose knowledge and experience can link policy and scholarship
Most successful applicants will hold a PhD or equivalent degree in a social science discipline or in history.
In exceptional cases, the Institute will support applicants with a PhD or its equivalent in other disciplines.
The Institute welcomes applications from eminent scholars and practioners who do not hold a PhD.
Advanced ABD graduate students may apply, but awards are contingent on their having completed the PhD before beginning the fellowship.
Eligibility Considerations (for non-US citizens/residents)
The following should be considered when applying for a Kellogg Institute fellowship:
Advanced English language proficiency is required.
Foreign nationals must have a valid passport and be able to obtain a J-1 Visa.
Note: According to US immigration regulations, an individual who completes a period of stay of less than five years as a J-1 professor or research scholar and does not have another appointment immediately following the termination of said stay, cannot return to the US as a J-1 professor or research scholar until the individual has been outside the US for a minimum period of two years. This two-year bar is different from the two-year home residency requirement normally issued to J-1 scholars.
How do I apply?
Kellogg Institute Visiting Fellowships are highly selective, with the majority awarded through our annual competition. The Institute may consider applications from distinguished senior scholars and practitioners on a rolling basis outside the competition.
Fellowships are offered for the academic year (August to May) or the fall (August to December) or spring semesters (January to May). In exceptional cases, two-year postdoctoral visiting fellowships may be offered to one or two applicants per year.
