Fellowship length is based on space availability. The minimum stay for faculty is three weeks and the maximum is 90 days. A fellowship may last for the entire semester, if immigration regulations and office space permit.
Yes. We make an effort to accommodate faculty who wish to use the GRI institutes for a shorter stay. In general, GRI faculty research trips start at three weeks and can extend through the entire semester. Faculty must have departmental permission in order to participate.
No. Scholars are eligible for one fellowship during an academic year.
No. We do not have the resources to provide housing or identify schools. Some sites have provided us with a list of housing suggestions, which we circulate when it is time to book travel.
No. This program was designed in large part to address the needs of faculty on sabbatical. GRI fellows are restricted from working during their stay. This is due not only to local labor and visa laws but for tax reasons as well.
No. NYU faculty on-site to teach should seek support from the site itself.
In most cases, faculty are assigned their own offices, which vary from site to site. All offices will include a desk, a desktop computer connected to a printer, office supplies, and modest administrative support. Whenever possible, faculty fellows are assigned their own office for the duration of their fellowship, but this is not always possible at all GRI sites, Shanghai in particular. During summer months it is more likely that faculty will share offices as this semester is very popular with those that cannot take a leave of absence at a different time. When necessary, shared offices are assigned in the interest of extending the program benefits to the largest number of applicants. In these cases, faculty will be assigned spacious offices to share, with their own desks and lockable storage.
No. The program is open to full-time faculty only.
Yes. As in New York, IRB approval or exemption is absolutely necessary for anyone conducting research that involves human subjects. This includes, but is not limited to, interviews and surveys. Applicants must confirm exemption or provide proof of approval in order to participate in the program.
No. Faculty fellows must be active employees of New York University.
Yes. Fellows may contact an outbound advisor at NYU's Office of Global Services (OGS). Faculty may also consult GlobalChek Plus, a self-service visa and immigration program specifically calibrated for use by the NYU community. Members of the NYU community can use this tool to find personalized information about their visa and immigration needs. Fellows planning longer trips should use this tool and consult with an OGS advisor prior to purchasing tickets. Follow this link to FAQs about GlobalCheck Plus, including login instructions. Faculty contacting OGS with questions should identify themselves as GRI fellows and include the site and desired length of stay in the message.
No. Software must not be added to or removed from GRI computers. We recommend fellows bring their own laptops prepared with any software necessary for research.
No. GRI provides office work spaces only. We do not have access to specialized facilities.
