MULTI-COUNTRY RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP
The CAORC Multi-Country Research Fellowship Program supports advanced regional or trans-regional research in the humanities, social sciences, or allied natural sciences for U.S. doctoral candidates and scholars who have already earned their PhD. Preference will be given to candidates examining comparative and/or cross-regional research. Applicants are eligible to apply as individuals or as teams.
Scholars must carry out research in two or more countries outside the United States, at least one of which must host a participating American Overseas Research Center. Approximately nine awards of $11,500 each will be awarded. Funding is provided by the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
Each year the highest ranking Multi-Country Fellowship applicant will receive an additional $1,000 toward travel expenses through the Mary Ellen Lane Multi-Country Travel Award. The award is named after CAORC's founding director, Dr. Mary Ellen Lane.
CAORC-NEH SENIOR RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP
The CAORC National Endowment for the Humanities Senior Research Fellowship Program supports advanced research in the humanities for U.S. scholars who hold a PhD (and also foreign national scholars who have been residents in the U.S. for at least three years).
Scholars must carry out research in a country which hosts a participating American Overseas Research Center. Fellowship stipends are $5,000 per month for four to six consecutive months. This program is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) under the Fellowship Programs at Independent Research Institutions (FPIRI).
