The Udall Center for Studies in Public Policy at the University of Arizona invites applications for it Fellows Program for 2012-2013.
Applications are due Friday, March 23, 2012.
Fellows will be affiliated with the Center and will study an aspect of public policy.
The Udall Center invites proposals on topics that span the range of public policy.
The projects of previous Fellows tend to cluster in several thematic areas: environment and natural resources; women, minorities, and Indigenous peoples; health and human development; the theory of democracy and institutions; conflict resolution and decision-making; economic development; and science, technology, and society.

TERMS OF FELLOWSHIP
Fellowships are for one semester only. The salaries of successful applicants will be covered by release-time, sabbaticals, or other funds provided by the home colleges, departments, or research centers. Potential applicants should discuss the prospects of such support with the appropriate administrators.
For faculty and staff affiliated with the UA College of Social and Behavioral Sciences (see SBS flier), the Institute of the Environment (see IE flier), or College of Letters, Arts and Science (see LAS flier), some stipend support is available from those units.
- faculty members, including research faculty members, at the University of Arizona
- full-time or part-time
- tenured, tenure-track, continuing, or continuing-eligible
- from any UA academic department, program, or other unit
- previous Fellows may apply for another term
Since the program was initiated in 1990, 124 UA faculty members have been selected as fellows, representing 38 departments and other units across the UA.
However, as mentioned above, since fellowship funding currently is supported only by the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, the Institute of the Environment, and the College of Letters, Arts and Science, applicants not affiliated with those units would need to secure another source of funding for the release costs to the department or center (such as through a grant, sabbatical-leave support, or funds from a college or outside entity).
Each applicant should submit both a printed copy and an electronic copy (by email with attachments in MS Word or Adobe PDF):
(1) a brief statement describing general policy research interests;
(2) plans for a specific project to be undertaken as a Udall Center Fellow (up to five pages);
(3) a plan identifying any specific proposals already submitted or to be submitted for external support for the project;
(4) a curriculum vitae;
(5) a letter of support from the department head, director, or dean; and
(6) and a letter of reference.
Applicants need to specify the semester for which they are applying (Fall 2012, Spring 2013, or no preference).
Printed applications should be submitted to the Udall Center at 803 East First Street -- and electronic copies to firstname.lastname@example.org -- by Friday, March 23, 2012.
Applications will be reviewed by a panel drawn from the Udall Center's former Fellows and other UA faculty. The Center expects to announce the results of the competition in April 2012.
