The Multi-Country Research Fellowship

The Multi-Country Research Fellowship supports advanced regional or trans-regional research in the humanities, social sciences, or allied natural sciences for U.S. doctoral candidates, and postdoctoral scholars. Preference will be given to candidates examining comparative and/or cross-regional research. Applicants are eligible to apply as individuals or in teams. Scholars must carry out research in two or more countries outside the U.S., at least one of which hosts a participating American overseas research center. 

Important information about the fellowship competition:

  • Scholars must carry out research in two or more countries outside the United States, at least one of which hosts a participating American overseas research center. Click here for a list of the centers.

  • Please note that in accordance with U.S. Department of State travel warnings, travel is not currently possible to the following countries with overseas research centers: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan (senior scholars may be permitted to travel to Lahore and Islamabad subject to approval), and Yemen. CAORC abides by all U.S. Department of State travel restrictions. 

  • The award is for a minimum of 90 days and Fellows may travel and carry out research between the period of May 2020 and November 2021. (The 90 day travel minimum can be split into multiple trips and does not need to be consecutive.)

  • Approximately nine awards of up to $11,000 each will be given. Funding is provided by the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.

Notification of fellowship status will be made available to each applicant via email by the end of April, 2020. Fellows are advised that it can take up to six months to obtain necessary research clearances and should plan accordingly.

Eligibility: 

  • Applicants must be U.S. citizens.

  • Fellowship awards will not exceed $11,000.

  • Funding is not available for research conducted in the U.S.

  • Group projects are admissible and will be evaluated as a single application. Groups should submit one (1) application for the group project and Curriculum Vitae for each member of the group. Two (2) letters of recommendation are required for the group. If awarded, a single grant of $11,000 will be issued to the group.

  • It is not required that you be affiliated with a U.S. academic institution to apply. As long as you are a PhD candidate at an accredited university, or have already earned your PhD, you are eligible for the fellowships.

  • PhD candidates must be ABD (all but dissertation) by May 2020.

  • If you have held a Multi-Country Fellowship in the past, you must wait 3 years before you are eligible to apply again. 

  • Minority scholars and scholars from Minority Serving Institutions are strongly encouraged to apply. 

​Deadline: January 23, 2020 (applicants are advised to submit applications well before the deadline in case applicants have questions for the CAORC main office).
