Fellowship Program for Research on Yemen for U.S. Citizens 2011 Competition
During the 2011 Academic year AIYS expects to award pre- and post-doctoral fellowships for research on Yemen conducted in places other than Yemen. The deadline for the receipt of fellowship applications for this competition is March 1, 2011. Scholars in all fields of the humanities, social sciences and from fields in the sciences such as paleontology and botany are eligible to apply. It should be noted that ECA-supported fellowships for U.S. based scholars may only be held by U.S. citizens. Fellowships are subject to the renewal of funding by the U.S. State Department's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Information about the range of fellowship programs may be obtained from the AIYS office or from our website.
Please note that this is currently a ban on using State Department-funded fellowships for travle to Yemen, Since it is unknown how long this situation will last, AIYS is--for this presnet competition--accepting only fellowship applications for research on Yemen conducted in places other than Yemen. We regret that we are not accepting applications for Arabic language study at this time.
