The Social Science Research Council is pleased to invite preliminary applications for its expanded and enhanced Transregional Research Junior Scholar Fellowship, funded with generous support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Following on four successful grants cycles, through which more than sixty-five individual fellowships totaling nearly 2.5 million USD have been awarded, the SSRC is continuing its transregional grants program, offering a 2018 Junior Scholar grants competition and awarding approximately fifteen grants of up to $45,000 to researchers in any world region. These fellowships help junior scholars (those at the postdoctoral stage, up to five years out of the PhD) complete first books and/or undertake second projects.
Deadline: September 27, 2017
