Opportunities in European Area Studies

Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program announces grant opportunities in Europe and Eurasia in the field of area studies. Applications for the 2016-17 academic year are currently being accepted from all levels of faculty and professionals, including early career.

We are soliciting applications for a broad range of awards in your field, including but not limited to:

Azerbaijan: All Disciplines
European Union: Fulbright Schuman European Union Affairs Program
Finland: Fulbright Bicentennial Chair
Slovak Republic: Social Sciences
Poland: Distinguished Chair in Humanities and Social Sciences

Applicants must be U.S. citizens and, as specified by the individual award description, hold a PhD or appropriate professional/terminal degree at the time of application. The application deadline is August 3, 2015.

In addition, All Disciplines awards are available in many countries and can be a good option if no discipline-focused award matches your expertise. Please visit the 2016-17 Catalog of Awards at http://catalog.cies.org to learn more about the opportunities available in this year’s competition. For most awards, English is sufficient for teaching and foreign language proficiency is only needed to the extent required by the proposed research project, if applicable.
