American Councils for International Education Research Fellowships

Provides full support for three to nine consecutive month research trips to Central Asia, Russia, the South Caucasus, Southeast Europe, Moldova and Ukraine.

Scholars in the social sciences and humanities are eligible to apply for the program. While a wide-range of topics receive support each year, all funded research must contribute to a body of knowledge enabling the U.S. to better understand the region and formulate effective policies within it. All applicants should clearly describe the policy-relevance of their work, be it in anthropology, history, international relations, political science, or some other field.

Support ranges from $5,000-$25,000.
