Short-Term Visiting Fellowships

Accepting applications for the following semesters. Applications due:

October 16, 2023 - for Spring 2024 and Fall 2024 visitors.

March 4, 2024 - for Fall 2024 and Spring 2025 visitors.

Applicants are normally notified of award decisions by one month following the application deadline.


The Glasscock Center Short-Term Visiting Fellowships bring distinguished scholars, artists, and performers to Texas A&M University. Both individuals and groups of the Texas A&M faculty may nominate Visiting Fellows who will contribute to the Glasscock Center’s mission to foster and celebrate the humanities and humanities research at Texas A&M.  Fellows’ visits typically last five days, during which they are expected to give a public presentation of their work as well as engage with faculty and students via such activities as workshops and classroom visits.

The Glasscock Center invites applications up to two semesters in advance of the proposed visit, so in this instance for the Fall 2024 and Spring 2025 semesters.

Fellows will have an office in the Glasscock Center during their stay.  The Texas A&M faculty sponsors are responsible for organizing visiting fellows’ activities and coordinating with Center staff on public events.  Visiting fellows receive a $5,000 stipend in addition to travel and lodging expenses. Per diem for the guest is not included. We make available a modest allowance to the faculty sponsor to organize on-campus meals to facilitate conversation with faculty and students.

The short-term visiting fellowships may be combined with other activities on campus, such as participation in a conference; however, the activities during the fellowship must be additional.

Applicants should verify that their event does not conflict with the dates of major Center events by checking with our web calendar prior to the submission of an application (the Center will not fund events that conflict with our Book Prize Lecture, Fallon-Marshall series, or other major symposia or lectures).

Short-Term Visiting Fellowship Nomination

Fellows at a variety of career stages will be considered; however, they must be nationally recognized leaders or emerging leaders in their respective fields. Applications that can demonstrate how the visiting fellow would benefit both faculty and student research will be prioritized.
