Each year the Wayne Morse Center for Law and Politics hosts two UO faculty members as Resident Scholars. Resident Scholars work with the Wayne Morse Center Faculty Codirector and Senior Scholar to 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. Resident Scholars receive stipends that can be used in a number of ways, depending on the desires of the Resident Scholar and his or her department or school.
The application deadline for 2023-24 has passed. Application information for the 2024-25 academic year, and a link to the online application form, will be available in Fall 2023.
