A non-profit center founded in 1907, the School for Advanced Research (SAR) supports advanced scholarship in anthropology, the humanities, and Native American art. Its mission—to promote the advanced study and communication of knowledge about human culture, evolution, history and creative expression—is pursued through a Resident Scholar Program established in 1973. Up to six Resident Scholar fellowships are awarded each year to scholars who have completed their research and who need time and support to prepare book-length manuscripts. Scholars are offered low-cost housing on the School’s historic campus, a separate office, a $40,000 stipend, an allowance account, library services, technical assistance, and other support during a nine-month tenure, from September 1 through May 31. The fellows become part of a dynamic community of scholars, Native artists, visiting research associates, and administrative faculty, who discuss their work during weekly colloquiums. Books written by Resident Scholars may be considered for publication by SAR Press. In addition to the Resident Scholar Program, SAR also offers an Advanced Seminar Program; the J. I. Staley Prize for outstanding books in anthropology; the Indian Arts Research Center, which houses an excellent collection of Indian art; SAR Press; and a Membership Program. The seminars, lectures, and other events offered by these programs provide the scholars with a stimulating environment in which to pursue their work. One NEH fellowship is available for the 2013–2014 academic year. Application procedures are available online.
