2019-20 CAORC Fellowships: Now Accepting Applications


CAORC is pleased to announce the 2019-20 fellowship applications are now available online!

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

The application deadline for both programs is January 23, 2020.

For more information and to apply, visit caorc.org/fellowships.

The 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 2019-2020 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 NEH under the Fellowship Programs at Independent Research Institutions (FPIRI) program.

Minority scholars and scholars from Minority Serving Institutions are strongly encouraged to apply.

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.

Each year the highest ranking Multi-Country Fellowship applicant will receive an additional $1,000 toward travel expenses. The award is named after CAORC’s founding director, Dr. Mary Ellen Lane.

Minority scholars and scholars from Minority Serving Institutions are strongly encouraged to apply.

The application deadline for both programs is January 23, 2020.
