The National Endowment for the Humanities is cooperating with the National Science Foundation's U.S. Antarctic Research Program in selecting a scholar in the humanities to spend 1 to 12 months in Antarctica from October 1980 to March 1981.
The Antarctic Fellowship is intended for scholars whose work seems likely to lead to significant contributions to humanistic thought and knowledge. The scope of Endowment support includes all the fields of the humanities and those areas of the social sciences that employ historical or philosophical approaches, such as jurisprudence, international relations, political theory, sociology, and other subjects concerned primarily with questions Of value rather than with quantitative matters. Candidates for degrees and persons seeking support for work leading toward degrees are not eligible, although applicants need not have advanced degrees to qualify. Applicants must be doing or planning to do research relating in whole or in part to Antarctica.
