MULTI-COUNTRY RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP

The Multi-Country Research Fellowship enables US scholars to carry out trans-regional and comparative research in countries across the network of Overseas Research Centers as well as other countries. The fellowship supports advanced research in the humanities, social sciences, and allied natural sciences for US doctoral candidates, who are all but dissertation, and scholars who have earned their PhD. Applicants are eligible to apply as individuals or as teams. Scholars must carry out research in two or more countries outside the US, at least one of which must host a participating 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 provides the opportunity for scholars to spend significant time in one country with an ORC as a research base. The fellowship supports advanced research in the humanities for US scholars who hold a PhD (and also foreign national scholars who have been resident in the US for at least three years). Approximately three awards will be granted and 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).
