    Please help me with the meaning of this phrase:

    John is a scholar-in-residence at F Foundation in Chicago.

    Thank you in advance.

    It probably means that he works for that foundation or receives money from them. "Scholar-in-residence" is likely a specific title--it's quite likely that the foundation has multiple scholars-in-residence.
    He lives in Chicago and may work (executes his duties as a "scholar") in a Foundation office or building.
