Advanced doctoral students and faculty in the humanities and social sciences are invited to apply to participate as Fellows in one of the three seminars (applicants may only select ONE seminar).
There are 60 available seats (20 per seminar).
If you do not attend the New School for Social Research and have previously been a Fellow at ICSI, you are eligible to apply again; however, we will accept no more than 2 previous Fellows per seminar.
New School PhD students/candidates who have not previously been Fellows at ICSI are eligible to apply and, if accepted, attend tuition-free; we will accept no more than 2 Fellows per seminar from the New School.
Successful applications will be those that demonstrate a compelling rationale for joining the particular seminar for which the candidate is applying, significant intellectual preparation, and a commitment to critical and creative thought in a collaborative environment.
Tuition and Scholarships
Tuition includes the weeklong seminar (including 5 Master Classes and 5 Workshops), one public lecture by each of the three faculty, one communal lunch, and the opening and closing receptions. Tuition does NOT cover travel, housing, or food. Tuition fees for all Fellows are below-cost, thanks to funding from the New School's Board of Trustees and private gifts.
All participants have the option to be housed in the shared residences at Kerrey Hall in the University Center. With wonderful views of the city and easy access to the ICSI seminars, each suite is equipped with a full bathroom, a kitchen with a full size refrigerator, cabinets, cooktop and microwave, a telephone, and a dining table and chairs. The bedrooms are fully furnished and have individual room temperature controls and cable TV jacks. The entire building is set up for Wi-Fi internet access. The residence has an abundance of amenities and large common spaces, including a main TV lounge, study room, a laundry room, and a gym.
The cost for a shared room in a suite (suites have either 2 or 3 bedrooms) from June 11-17, 2016 is $450. If you would like a private room in one of the suites, the cost is $550 (prices are subject to change and should be confirmed with University Housing). Check-in will also be available the day before the Seminar Week starts, June 10th.
