From the Wisconsin Institute for Research on Poverty’s website:

View the Call for Visiting Scholar Applications for 2013–2014 Academic Year (deadline 6/28/2013)

The Institute for Research on Poverty invites applications from U.S.-based social science scholars from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups to visit IRP, interact with its faculty in residence, and become acquainted with the staff and resources of the Institute. The invitation extends (but is not restricted) to those who are in the early years of their academic careers. The intent of the program, which is supported by the University of Wisconsin–Madison, is to enhance the research interests and resources available to visitors, to foster interaction between resident IRP affiliates and a diverse set of scholars, and to broaden the corps of poverty researchers.

Visits of one to two weeks’ duration by several scholars can be supported during either fall or spring semester of the academic year 2012–2013. The scholars will be invited to give a seminar, to work on their own projects, and to confer with an IRP faculty mentor, who will arrange for interchange with other IRP affiliates. Transportation, lodging, and meal expenses will be covered by IRP.

Interested scholars should submit the following materials: (1) a letter describing their poverty research interests and experience; (2) the proposed dates for a visit; (3) a current curriculum vitae; (4) two examples of written material; and (5) an estimate of costs to be covered by IRP, to: Robin Snell, Institute for Research on Poverty, 1180 Observatory Drive, Madison WI 53706; fax: 608-265-3119; e-mail: Applications should be submitted by June 30, 2012. IRP’s Executive Committee reviews applications and selects scholars.
