Applications for Carleton-funded fellowships are due March 28, 2023!


The Allen and Irene G. Salisbury Fellowship is an endowed fund intended to support student research fellowships. these fellowships support independent research activities or projects in the creative or performing arts. Funding might be used for library, museum or archival research; fieldwork; and creating or learning to perform a work of art. 

Although the interests pursued through a Salisbury Fellowship might well grow out of course work or serve as preparation for comps, the purpose of the Fellowship is to provide freedom to engage in other kinds of learning.  In the selection process, preference will be given to those studying Nepal or Asia, in general.


Up to $5,000 per fellowship awarded.


  • Sophomores and juniors are eligible to apply.
  • Projects with any focus are eligible; preference will be given to those studying an aspect of Nepal or Asia.
  • All applicants must be in good academic standing.

Institutional Review Board

Occasionally, Carleton-funded fellowship research involving human subjects requires Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval.  Be sure to consult with your mentors to understand if this applies to you! Funding for any projects requiring IRB approval will be released once it is received.
