CAORC-NEH Research Fellowship

The CAORC-NEH Research Fellowship is now accepting applications! This fellowship provides the opportunity for scholars to spend significant time in one country with an Overseas Research Center (ORC) as a research base. The fellowship supports advanced research in the humanities for US scholars who hold a PhD (and also foreign national scholars who have been resident in the US for at least three years). Approximately three awards will be granted and 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).

Fields of study include, but are not limited to, history, philosophy, religious studies, literature, literary criticism, and visual and performing arts. In addition, research that embraces a humanistic approach and methods will be considered.

Applicants must propose four to six consecutive months of research affiliated with an ORC in one of the following countries: Algeria, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Cyprus, Georgia, Indonesia, Mexico, Mongolia, Morocco, Nepal, Pakistan (senior scholars may be permitted to travel to Lahore and Islamabad subject to approval), Senegal, Sri Lanka, or Tunisia. Please note that several of the ORCs have an NEH FPIRI Fellowship separate from the CAORC-NEH Research Fellowship. Please refer to their websites for more information.

Minority scholars and scholars from Minority-Serving Institutions are especially encouraged to apply.
