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 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.
Applications for the 2019-20 academic year are due on Monday, January 7, 2019, by 5 p.m. Applicants may submit proposals related to the theme of inquiry—Science, Policy, and the Public. Proposals are also welcome on significant political and policy issues in the United States at the national, state, and local levels, as well as global affairs.
