CCSRE Faculty Research Fellowship


The Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity (CCSRE) aims to support and sustain an environment of vibrant and intellectually engaging scholarship. This mission includes fostering community, collaboration, and innovation through bringing together scholars on campus who focus on race and ethnicity in their work.

The Faculty Research Fellowship program features Stanford scholars who have recently published new, timely research on how race and ethnicity have powerfully shaped human experience across time, context, and place. During the fellowship period, faculty will have the opportunity to provide intellectual leadership to the Stanford community through their groundbreaking work while benefitting from research support and engagement with other scholars on campus.

Faculty Research Fellows, along with our affiliated scholars and graduate fellows, will collaborate over wine and cheese at several chautauquas, or educational gatherings, hosted by the Center that will feature the recent work of each fellow. These informal gatherings will take place during the academic year, and will both highlight, as well as invite critical discussion around, each work. The Center will provide participants with a copy of each fellow's work and they will be encouraged to come to the event prepared to debate and discuss.

Eligibility & Application Process:

CCSRE offers Faculty Research Fellowships to current, full-time members of the Academic Council and Medical Center Line of the Stanford faculty who focus on race and ethnicity in their research.
