Junior Fellows are expected to devote their time to productive scholarship, focusing on publishing their dissertation research, undertaking new research in accordance with their proposed project, and engaging in other original work that will further their academic careers. The Society aims to foster teaching excellence in the humanities and social sciences, and the fellowships carry with them a teaching responsibility of four 2-credit courses over the two-year period, one course per term.
