CAORC offers two fellowship programs, the NEH Senior Research Fellowship and Multi-Country Research Fellowship, which allow fellows to visit and carry out research within our network of Overseas Research Centers.

 

In addition, each Center offers fellowships and grant opportunities specific to its region. Visit the ORC Fellowships & Grants page for more information on opportunities within the ORC network.

2019-20 CAORC fellowship applications are now available. Application deadline: January 23, 2020.

The CAORC National Endowment for the Humanities Senior Research Fellowship Program supports advanced research in the humanities for U.S. postdoctoral scholars, and foreign national postdoctoral scholars who have been residents in the U.S. for three or more years.

 

Scholars must carry out research in a country which hosts a participating American overseas research center. Eligible countries for 2018-2019 are: Algeria, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Cambodia, Cyprus, Georgia, Indonesia, Mexico, Mongolia, Morocco, Myanmar (Burma), Nepal, Senegal, Sri Lanka or Tunisia.

 

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). 

NEH SENIOR 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 in teams.

 

Scholars must carry out research in two or more countries outside the United States, at least one of which hosts a participating American overseas research center. Approximately eight awards of up to $11,000 each will be given. 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.
