Kennan Institute Title VIII Short-Term Grants
Up to one month’s duration
The Kennan Institute offers Title VIII Short-Term Grants to scholars whose research in the social sciences or humanities focuses on Russia Ukraine, and the countries of Eurasia, and who demonstrate a particular need to utilize the library, archival, and other specialized resources of the Washington, D.C. area. Policy-relevant research is preferred. Academic participants must either possess a doctoral degree or be doctoral candidates who have nearly completed their dissertations. For non-academics, an equivalent degree of professional achievement is expected.
Grant recipients are required to be in residence in Washington, D.C. for the duration of their grant. Two rounds of competitive selection for Short-Term Grants will be held in 2016. The next closing dates are February 15 and July 15, 2016. Applicants will be notified of the competition results roughly seven weeks after the closing date. Awardees must provide at least one month notification before beginning their grant. Only U.S. citizens are eligible for Title VIII Short-Term Grants.
