FUNDED : Apply for the Fung Global Fellows Program 2024-25 in USA

Applications are being accepted by Princeton University for the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies' Fung Global Fellows Programme. Early-career academics from all over the world will be chosen for the programme to spend an academic year there conducting research and talking about a shared theme.

During the 10-month academic year 2024-25, the program theme will be “Colonial Residues.” Colonialism is frequently evoked today as a root cause of global inequity or, in some jarring instances, nostalgic celebration. In both the “new” states and the “old” ones that reluctantly let them go, colonialism’s many impacts are ubiquitous—its traces often tangible and measurable, shaping political regimes and socioeconomic wellbeing while also determining whose stories are told and by whom; whose achievements are celebrated and how; and whose resources are used, removed, or polluted. Even when not immediately visible, colonial residues are arguably present, much like the microplastics that now pervade air, water, and earth.

We therefore invite applications from scholars whose work expands our understanding of this phenomenon. Applicants may address any region of the world, past and present, and may be from any disciplinary background in the humanities and social sciences.

The hope is that we will enable a truly exceptional set of international scholars to come together to interrogate today’s colonial residues beyond the traditional binary of colony and metropole, asking how they may be apprehended, and if there might not even be scalable solutions for our common future.


  • Cover letter (1.5 pages maximum)
  • Curriculum Vitae (including publications)
  • Research proposal (maximum of 3 pages, single spaced)
  • One writing sample (article or book chapter, maximum of 50 pages)
  • For those applicants with a faculty appointment or a professional research appointment, an official letter from the applicant’s current employer affirming that, should an offer be made, the applicant would be permitted to accept it and to spend the academic year at Princeton University.  If an independent scholar, then a note stating this status must be uploaded.
  • The names and email addresses for three referees, who will be contacted automatically by the online application system with an invitation to upload their letter of recommendation to the system by the application deadline.


Only applications that adhere to the provided guidelines, including all required information submitted via the application form, will be considered.

Don't miss the application deadline, which is 15th November 2023 (America/New_York) & 16th November 2023 05:59 (CET) .
