Full-time Tufts faculty members who are interested in becoming a Talloires Scholar-in-Residence at the Tufts European Center this summer are invited to submit applications to the Office of the Provost. The deadline is Monday, January 21.
The Talloires Scholar-in-Residence Program gives faculty the opportunity to work on scholarly endeavors at the Tufts European Center in Talloires, France, from May 14 to June 28. Two Scholars-in-Residence will be selected by the Office of the Provost in consultation with the school deans. Selection criteria include scholarship, teaching, contribution to the Tufts community, and suitability to a Talloires residency.
Scholars are expected to be in residence in Talloires for the duration of the Tufts in Talloires Program, and will contribute to the undergraduate and faculty community by guest lecturing in relevant classes or by giving talks to the larger community of students, colleagues, staff, and local guests.
Each scholar is provided with funds to help cover the costs of housing, round-trip airfare from Boston to Geneva, and other living expenses.
Applications should include a current curriculum vitae; a letter of support from a dean or department chairperson; and a formal letter of application with answers to the following questions:
- How will going to Talloires be useful for you, your research and/or your work?
- How do you plan to use your time while in Talloires?
- What local resources will you take advantage of while in Talloires?
- How will your work in Talloires benefit Tufts University?
The complete application package must be submitted electronically to Diana Capone in the Office of the Provost by Monday, January 21 at 5 p.m. Selection of the Scholars-in-Residence will be made by the Office of the Provost by early February.
