The Fung Global Fellows Program reflects Princeton University’s commitment to engaging with scholars from around the world and inspiring ideas that transcend borders. The program brings exceptional international early-career faculty members working in the social sciences and the humanities to Princeton for a year of research, writing, and collaboration. It is administered by the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies, which serves as a site for integration and joint activity across all of the University’s international and area programs.

Each year, the Fung Global Fellows Program will select six scholars from around the world to be in residence at Princeton for one academic year and to engage in research and discussion around a common theme. The program includes a public seminar series where the fellows will present their work to the University community. Fellowships will be awarded through a competitive application process to scholars employed outside the United States who have demonstrated outstanding scholarly achievement, exhibit unusual intellectual promise, and are still early in their careers.

During the academic year 2014-15, the theme for the Fung Global Fellows Program will be “Global Diffusion.” The program seeks applications from scholars developing new, innovative ways to study global diffusion processes. The objects of diffusion could be specific modes of social categorization (such as “race” in census forms), principles of legitimation (such as democracy), government policies (such as minority quota systems), forms of conflict (such as revolutions), or cultural practices (such as Tango dancing or marrying “in white”). We especially encourage analytically oriented approaches that identify recurring patterns and mechanisms through rigorous comparison of multiple cases or quantitative analysis, with broad geographic (preferably transcontinental) coverage. Researchers working on all historical periods of the modern age, all regions of the world and of all disciplinary backgrounds in the social sciences and humanities are encouraged to apply.

The director for the 2014-15 program year is Andreas Wimmer, Hughes-Rogers Professor of Sociology.
