Mission Statement: 

The School for Advanced Research provides a dynamic environment for the advanced study and communication of knowledge about human culture, evolution, history, and creative expression. SAR presents programs and publications that impart the learning of social scientists, humanists, and artists.


The School for Advanced Research (SAR) supports advanced scholarship and creativity in the social sciences, the humanities, and Native American art. Since 1907, SAR has supported innovative programs that expand our knowledge of human nature, culture, and creativity.Through the Indian Arts Research Center (IARC), SAR offers artist-in-residence fellowships for Native Americans. These fellowships provide opportunities for artists of all mediums to dedicate time to explore new avenues of creativity or strengthen their existing talents. Internship programs at IARC support Native American undergraduates, graduate students, and junior museum professionals in developing strong backgrounds in academia and museum work.IARC also offers several no-cost programs open to tribal community groups, individual artists, tribal elders, and local Indian schools who wish to visit the collections. Through its Resident Scholar and Summer Scholar programs, SAR awards up to 14 residential fellowships each year to scholars in the social sciences, arts, and humanities who need time to think and write. Seminars at SAR promote in-depth communication among scholars who are at a critical stage of research on a shared topic and whose interaction has the potential to create new insights on human evolution, behavior, culture, and creative expression.
