The Nancy Weiss Malkiel Fellowship for Junior Faculty

[We have the following announcement.]

The Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation is proud to announce a one-time, highly selective fellowship for junior faculty, created in honor of Nancy Weiss Malkiel, a 1965 Woodrow Wilson Fellow, distinguished historian, and longtime Princeton dean.

The Nancy Weiss Malkiel Fellowship, created on the occasion of Dr. Malkiel’s 40th year of service on the Woodrow Wilson Foundation Board, is designed to support junior faculty as they work towards achieving tenure. Five 12-month awards of $10,000 will be made in the 2015–16 academic year.

This one-time Fellowship program will support a small cadre of emerging faculty leaders whose careers promise—like Dr. Malkiel’s—to play a significant role in shaping American higher education. Applicants, who must have passed their third-year review no later than January 29, 2016, may be working in any field of the humanities or social sciences. Preference will be given to those addressing topics related to 20th- and 21st-century American history, politics, culture, and society, with emphases including but not limited to African American issues, women’s issues, and/or higher education. Applications are due by December 1, 2015.
