2018-19 applications are now available for the Wayne Morse Center’s Resident Scholars program for University of Oregon professors and the Graduate Research Fellows program for graduate students.

About the Resident Scholars program
Each year the Wayne Morse Center for Law and Politics hosts two UO faculty members as Resident Scholars. This grant supports research related to the Wayne Morse Center theme of inquiry or its Program for Democratic Engagement and Governance. Resident Scholars conduct research or other professional activities that contribute to the scholar’s own work and the Wayne Morse Center’s programs.

The Resident Scholar program is open to tenured and tenure-track faculty at the UO. Faculty must be employed by the UO during the term of the scholarship. Faculty members on sabbatical leave are eligible, but they must be in Oregon and interact with the Wayne Morse Center.

Resident Scholars receive $8,000 plus OPE up to 30 percent; Resident Scholars from the School of Law receive a stipend of $10,000 plus up to 30 percent for OPE. The stipend is for the fiscal year 2018-2019 and will be paid directly to the Resident Scholar’s department. It can be used to buy out teaching, for summer support, or as a salary stipend, depending on the desires of the Resident Scholar and his or her department or school.

Application deadline: January 8, 2018.
