INSTITUTE FOR ADVANCED STUDY, School of Historical Studies,
Opportunities for Scholars 2012-2013. The Institute is an independent
private institution founded in 1930 to create a community of scholars
focused on intellectual inquiry, free from teaching and other university
obligations. Scholars from around the world come to the Institute to

single term or a full academic year. Scholars may apply for a stipend,
but those with sabbatical funding, other grants, retirement funding or

historical research, the School of Historical Studies' principal
interests are the history of western, near eastern and Asian
civilizations, with particular emphasis upon Greek and Roman
civilization, the history of Europe (medieval, early modern, and

history of science, philosophy, modern international relations, and
music studies. Residence in Princeton during term time is required.
