Kellogg Institute Research Fellowships

August 31, 2015 Leave a comment

Since 1983, the Kellogg Institute for International Studies has offered visiting fellowships to promote interdisciplinary international research in a supportive community of scholars.

This widely respected residential program offers you time to pursue scholarly inquiry where it takes you, advance your personal research, and collaborate with other scholars and practitioners from across the US and around the globe.

As a visiting fellow, you pursue research related to Kellogg Institute themes of democracy and human development, share your research with the Notre Dame scholarly community, and have the opportunity to publish in Kellogg’s peer-reviewed Working Paper Series.

An Ideal Scholarly Environment

While at the Kellogg Institute, you interact with leading scholars one-on-one and through the Institute’s seminars and lectures, international conferences, roundtable discussions on world affairs, and cultural events.

The facilities at the Hesburgh Center are ideal for scholarly research.  Visiting fellows have spacious offices, on-site information technology support, personal library services through a branch of the University’s library, and use of a variety of campus facilities.

Visiting Fellowships include:

  • Stipend
  • Travel expenses
  • Medical insurance benefits
  • Partial housing subsidy for the Hesburgh Center Residences or other on-campus housing

Who is Eligible?

We invite applications from scholars and practitioners who conduct international research on our themes of democracy and/or human development.  Applicants may come from any country and typically fall into three groups:

  • Promising junior and midcareer scholars (typically postdocs and assistant or associate professors)
  • Distinguished senior scholars with an established record of scholarly excellence
  • Accomplished policy makers, journalists, and other practioners whose knowledge and experience can link policy and scholarship

Degree Requirements

Most successful applicants will hold a PhD or equivalent degree in a social science discipline or in history.

  • In exceptional cases, the Institute will support applicants with a PhD or its equivalent in other disciplines.
  • The Institute welcomes applications from eminent scholars and practioners who do not hold a PhD.
  • Advanced ABD graduate students may apply, but awards are contingent on their having completed the PhD before beginning the fellowship.

Eligibility Considerations (for non-US citizens/residents)

The following should be considered when applying for a Kellogg Institute fellowship:

  • Advanced English language proficiency is required.
  • Foreign nationals must have a valid passport and be able to obtain a J-1 Visa.

Note: According to US immigration regulations, an individual who completes a period of stay of less than five years as a J-1 professor or research scholar and does not have another appointment immediately following the termination of said stay, cannot return to the US as a J-1 professor or research scholar until the individual has been outside the US for a minimum period of two years. This two-year bar is different from the two-year home residency requirement normally issued to J-1 scholars.

How do I apply?

Kellogg Institute Visiting Fellowships are highly selective, with the majority awarded through our annual competition. The Institute may consider applications from distinguished senior scholars and practitioners on a rolling basis outside the competition.

Fellowship Terms

Fellowships are offered for the academic year (August to May) or the fall (August to December) or spring semesters (January to May).  In exceptional cases, two-year postdoctoral visiting fellowships may be offered to one or two applicants per year.

Annual Visiting Fellow Competition

The application for the academic year opens in mid-August.

The deadline is November 1.

Awards will be announced in February.

Application Process

To apply for a Kellogg Institute visiting fellowship, please go to

You will be asked to create an account and you will need to remember your login and password in order to save and return to your application until you are ready to submit.

A complete application will consist of the following documents uploaded through the online application system:

  • Cover letter addressing your interest in the fellowship and specifying your preferred term of stay
  • Curriculum vitae
  • A research project statement (6–10 double-spaced pages)
  • Names and email addresses for three letters of recommendation

The application system will generate an email to the three recommenders you identify.  Please ensure that these individuals are aware that letters of recommendation will be submitted through the online application system.

How Are Visiting Fellows Selected?

Fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis. A committee composed of Kellogg Institute Faculty Fellows evaluates the applications based on the following selection criteria:

What is the problem being addressed? What is its interest and importance within and beyond the researcher’s field?

How does the study relate to the research themes of the Kellogg Institute?

What is the quality of the research design, including basic hypotheses, research methodology, and the kinds of data or evidence the researcher is considering?

Is the importance and originality of this project clear to someone outside the applicant’s discipline?

What is the individual’s scholarly record and potential?

How much would the researcher be able to complete during his/her time at the Institute?



Visiting fellows are expected to be in residence during their tenure at Kellogg. Absences of more than a few days are discouraged and require the Director’s permission.


Visiting fellows are expected to give at least one presentation of their current research in the Kellogg seminar and lecture series.


Our visitors are an important part of the scholarly community at the Institute.  We expect fellows to attend and participate in the weekly seminar and lecture series and most Kellogg events.


We expect visiting fellows to publish the results of research undertaken and/or completed during their stay. We ask that such publications contain an acknowledgment of Kellogg Institute support.

Working Papers

Kellogg has its own peer-reviewed Working Paper series to which visiting fellows must submit at least one paper for consideration, either during or shortly after their stay. The series is not copyrighted and is intended to speed dissemination of work-in-progress for use and feedback by other scholars. The research may then appear later in books or journals.
