The Social Science Research Council invites applications from early career researchers for two year-long fellowships to conduct qualitative studies of arts organizations founded by, with, and for communities of color in the United States and Puerto Rico. These fellowships will form part of the SSRC’s Arts Research with Communities of Color (ARCC) program and the Wallace Foundation’s current initiative in the arts.
Each successful fellow will work in collaboration with one of the following community arts organizations: Esperanza Peace and Justice Center (San Antonio, TX) and Museo de Arte Contemporáneo (San Juan, Puerto Rico).
Fellows are expected to begin their 12-month studies sometime between May and August 2023. Each fellow will receive a stipend of $70,000 for the 12-month research period, as well as up to $15,000 to cover costs associated with relocation (where relevant), research set-up, and involvement in any pre-research activities such as workshops and other meetings. In addition to their individual studies, fellows will participate in regular, cohort-wide professional learning community activities.
The deadline for submissions is January 6, 2023. For further details about the fellowship and the ARCC program, please see the Request for Proposals.
