RISD Global: Grants & Fellowships

RISD Global Faculty Fellowship

RISD Global + Academic Affairs invites interested RISD faculty to apply for the RISD Global Faculty Fellowship in AY2018-2019 to explore global issues facing our world. Fellows should be committed to research and practices that seek to critically engage how artists, designers, cultural producers and scholars can respond to, or comment on, such global challenges towards positive impact.

The RISD Global Faculty Fellowship program is designed to facilitate full- and part-time faculty members from across disciplines in research, teaching, social justice and public engagement that focus on, and question, the intersections between globalization and art and design at RISD, and in the world. One fellowship is available in AY2018-2019.

During the one-year appointment, the Global Faculty Fellow will receive a teaching release to spend time in residence in the RISD Global Office, with additional time spent embedded within an off-campus site relevant to their research.

The fellow will receive support for the travel component of the fellowship and have access to resources to bring relevant speakers, artists, scholars, and critics to campus to engage with the broader community.

The Dean Council in collaboration with RISD Global will review all proposals and make recommendation to the Provost for final approval.

 

Deadline for all proposals: mid October, 2017 (date still TBD)
