CAORC Multi-Country Research Fellowship

The Council of American Overseas Research Centers (CAORC) is currently accepting applications for their Multi-Country Research Fellowship with a deadline of December 8, 2022.

The Multi-Country Research Fellowship enables US scholars to carry out trans-regional and comparative research in countries across the network of Overseas Research Centers as well as other countries. 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. Applicants are eligible to apply as individuals or as teams. Scholars must carry out research in two or more countries outside the US, at least one of which must host a participating Overseas Research Center. Approximately nine awards of $12,000 each will be awarded. Funding is provided by the US Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.​

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.

Detailed fellowship information and application guidelines can be found on the CAORC website.
