The American Academy of Religion (AAR) invites applications for AAR-Luce Fellowships in Religion and International Affairs. The program places scholars with PhDs, from the humanities or related social sciences, at the US Department of State, under the Department’s Franklin Fellows Program. Fellows will participate in substantive work of the Department involving religion and international affairs. Among the kinds of expertise sought is Hindu nationalism in India, or Theravada Buddhism in Sri Lanka and Burma. Fellows will receive a stipend of up to $6,500 per month plus up to $1,500 as a relocation subsidy. Funded by a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation, the Fellowship program seeks to bring scholarly knowledge and critical perspectives to the analysis of contemporary issues and the shaping of policy; and to offer scholars opportunities to contribute their expertise while learning about the functioning of a US government agency.
