About

The IRiSS Faculty Fellows Program offers Stanford faculty members assistance to start new projects, continue ongoing research, or complete publications. The program encourages faculty to explore new research areas through writing and in the classroom.

What faculty fellows do at IRiSS

Faculty fellows use their time at IRiSS to form collaborations, develop new teaching initiatives to support social science students, and attract external funding. Fellows can work on an individual or small group project. They will be expected to participate in monthly fellow lunches to share ideas and progress.

Office at IRiSS

As part of the fellowship program, faculty members may be in residence at IRiSS. This allows faculty to take advantage of the rich collegial atmosphere of an interdisciplinary group of social scientists. Our location in the foothills allows faculty to “get away” and focus on writing and research, while still permitting them to attend campus events. Supported faculty will be informed if offices become available.

Support

Faculty fellowships may include a course release. Please see the Program Guidelines each year for details.

Applying

An annual call for proposals is issued in late December, with a January deadline. Awards will be announced during winter quarter. We encourage faculty to submit proposals that bring together ideas and/or individuals from several departments. Faculty members conducting social science research may apply.

For details, please see the program guidelines below.
