As part of this initiative the Mellon Foundation funds external fellowships of up to one semester to individuals who participate in a Quadrant group. Stipends are up to $30,000, including benefits, for one semester.
Quadrant Fellows are in residence at the Institute for Advanced Study during the tenure of their fellowship and have the opportunity to work directly with university press editors in developing their work.
Work completed while on this fellowship may be submitted to the University of Minnesota Press for publication through its standard peer review and faculty committee approval processes.
