On an occasional basis, the Russell Sage Foundation (RSF) has available office space for short-term Visiting Researchers conducting research relevant to RSF’s core programs and special initiatives. These positions do not come with any financial support and are available for visits up to five months, between September 1 and June 30, as space permits. Visiting Researchers are provided with an office at the foundation, computers and software, and library access. Applicants from outside the greater NYC area may be provided with a partially-subsidized apartment near RSF, if available. Visiting Researchers must be several years beyond the PhD and have a project that is relevant to the Foundation’s program areas.
Also, because journalists report on issues of relevance to RSF, the Foundation has established a Visiting Journalist Fellowship. The fellowship provides journalists the time and resources needed to carry out an original project while also offering an opportunity to interact with resident visiting scholars who might help inform the development of these projects. RSF will pay visiting journalists a stipend of $8,000 per month for full-time visits of up to four months (maximum stipend of $32,000 per individual fellowship). Fellows are provided with an office at the Foundation, computers and software, and library access. Applicants who reside outside of the greater New York City area may be provided with a partially-subsidized apartment near RSF, if available. Eligible applicants should be journalists with a minimum of 5-7 years of experience who write or report on social, economic, or political conditions in the United States.
