Islamic Legal Studies Program
Harvard Law School

Islamic Legal Studies Senior Scholar Fellowships 2014-2015

The Islamic Legal Studies Program at Harvard Law School is now accepting applications for its Senior Scholar Fellowships in Islamic Legal Studies for the academic year 2014-2015. The Senior Scholar Fellowships are designed to provide senior scholars in the field the opportunity to spend an academic year or semester in residence at ILSP to research a topic of his/her choice. Preferably, that research would also relate to one of ILSP’s three research streams: Islamic Law and Legal History, Islamic Law and Society, and Islamic Law Themes in Digital Humanities.

These fellowships are non-stipendiary. Scholars will be provided with office space, access to Harvard University libraries, a networked computer, and access to a printer.

Scholars are expected to be in residence during their fellowship term and to give a public talk on their chosen topic. Scholars must also abide by other applicable terms and conditions of the program.
