The Council of American Overseas Research Centers (CAORC) Multi-Country Research Fellowship is now accepting applications! This fellowship enables US scholars to carry out trans-regional and comparative research in countries across the network of Overseas Research Centers (ORCs), as well as other countries. The Multi-Country Research fellowship program first launched in 1993 with fourteen ORCs participating. Now in its 28th year, the network has expanded to twenty-five ORCs who participate (with the exception of countries with travel restrictions).
The fellowship supports advanced research in the humanities, social sciences, and allied natural sciences for US doctoral candidates, who are ‘all but dissertation,’ and scholars who have earned their PhD. Scholars must carry out research in two or more countries outside the US, at least one of which must host a participating ORC. Approximately nine awards of $11,500 will be granted.
Each year the highest ranking Multi-Country Fellowship applicant will receive an additional $1,000 toward travel expenses through the Mary Ellen Lane Multi-Country Travel Award. The award is named after CAORC’s founding director, Dr. Mary Ellen Lane.
Minority scholars and scholars from Minority Serving Institutions are encouraged to apply.
Deadline: November 16, 2021
