The CLAGS Residency Fellowship Program assists scholars and professionals whose research on the LGBTQ experience can benefit from access to CLAGS’s resources and its location in midtown Manhattan at the Graduate Center, City University of New York. The Scholars-in-Residence Program is designed to: 1) encourage research and writing on the history, literature and culture of the LGBTQ community or other dynamic projects relating to the LGBTQ experience, broadly conceived; 2) to promote and facilitate interaction among the participants including fellows funded by other sources;  and 3) to facilitate the dissemination of the researcher’s findings through lectures via CLAGS’s ongoing Events Series. The CLAGS Scholar-in-Residence will be allowed to spend up to six months in residence. Beyond a CLAGS affiliation, fellows will receive office space, access to libraries and electronic databases, as well as opportunities to meet and work with leading LGBTQ scholars in New York City. No monetary stipend is available to fellows. The Fellowship Program is open to all disciplines with projects that are related to LGBTQ studies. Creative writing (works of poetry and fiction) and projects that result in a performance are not eligible. Applicants finishing dissertation topics are welcome to apply.
