Fellowship: ARISC Graduate Student, Postdoctoral, and Junior Faculty Research Fellowship

Deadline: February 8, 2013

The American Research Institute of the South Caucasus (ARISC) announces the availability of US graduate student, postdoctoral and junior faculty (pre-tenure) fellowships in support of research and mentoring activities in the South Caucasus (Armenia, Azerbaijan, and/or Georgia). The goals of the fellowship are 1) to support research in and the study of the South Caucasus; and 2) to select, recognize and financially support individuals early in their careers who demonstrate high potential to contribute to research in this region.

Projects in all fields in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences are eligible, but all projects must include one or more undergraduate and/or graduate students from Armenia, Azerbaijan, and/or Georgia as research assistants/participants in order to foster long-term ties between the academic communities in the U.S. and the South Caucasus. Research awards will be made for a maximum of $5000 each to help cover travel, living, and research expenses in the South Caucasus; an additional $500 may be made available for fellows to offset necessary expenses related to incorporating an undergraduate or graduate student in the host country in their research program. Proposals will be judged on their quality and on the potential of the research to strengthen scholarship on the South Caucasus.
