The Scholar Remote Fellowship program affords Network faculty the opportunity to pursue research projects supported by the vast digital holdings of New York University’s Division of Libraries. Scholars accepted into the program will be granted e-resource access to over one million ebooks and 166,000 e-journals in NYU’s online collections, connecting them to the scholarship of the world from their home or office. Scholars also receive access to additional online resources. The Scholar Remote Fellowship Program serves nearly 60 Network scholars annually.

PREREQUISITES.  Several prerequisites must be met for participation in this program:

  • The applicant must be a full-time faculty member at an  FRN member institution. (See the Member Institutions page.)
  • The proposed project must be sound and have scholarly merit.
  • New York University must have the resources necessary to be of substantial benefit to the applicant’s project goals.

APPLICATIONS.  Applicants must submit to their campus Liaison Officer proposals that describe research or curricular development projects which would be advanced by participation in this program at New York University. These proposals should indicate ways in which the faculty member would benefit as a scholar and a teacher and ways in which the project would enhance the academic life of the home institution.

A complete application will include a statement of intent detailing their intended scholarly activities, a bibliography, current CV, and a letter of support from either the division dean or department head on campus who is well-acquainted with the applicant’s area of research. All applications require consultation with the institutional liaison officer.

POST-TERM REPORT.  Upon completion of each term as scholar, participants are required to submit to their Liaison Officer a brief description of academic work accomplished during that semester. A copy of the report should be sent to the Faculty Resource Network. Continuation of program privileges is contingent upon submission of the report.
