The Talloires Scholar-in-Residence & The MacJannet Artist-in-Residence
The Office of the Provost invites full-time Tufts faculty members to submit applications for summer opportunities at the European Center in Talloires, France.
The Talloires Scholar-in-Residence
The Talloires Scholar-in-Residence Program is funded by the Office of the Provost with the purpose of providing faculty the opportunity to work on scholarly endeavors at the Tufts European Center in Talloires, France. Two Scholars-in-Residence will be selected by the Office of the Provost in consultation with the school deans.
The MacJannet Artist-in-Residence
Funded by the MacJannet Foundation, this program offers artists from any creative domain the opportunity to further an artistic project while in residence in Talloires. One artist will be selected by the Office of the Provost in coordination with the MacJannet Foundation. The MacJannet Foundation promotes international understanding and active citizenship by championing the hands-on educational philosophy of its founders, Donald MacJannet, a 1916 Tufts alumnus, and his wife, Charlotte.
The selected Scholars in Residence and the Artist in Residence are expected to be in residence in Talloires for the duration of the six-week Tufts in Talloires Program, May 16 – June 30, 2023.
During that time the Scholars and Artist will contribute to the undergraduate and faculty community by guest lecturing in relevant classes or by giving talks to the larger community of students, colleagues, staff, and local guests about their work.
The 2023 Tufts in Talloires program description and course listing can be found on the European Center website.
Both the Scholars in Residence and the Artist in Residence will be subsidized through the Office of the Provost for up to $4,500 (against receipts) to help cover the costs of housing, round-trip airfare (Boston/Geneva/Boston), and other living expenses. Gabriella Goldstein, Director of the European Center will assist the selected faculty with housing and travel plans and other logistical issues as well as orientation to the Tufts in Talloires Program.
