The cv or resume may be submitted either by mail to the ACMS office at University of Pennsylvania or as an email attachment to the email address: email@example.com. Supplementary materials sent by mail must be received by February 15, 2017 for the application to be considered.
- Proposed projects must require at least 4 weeks but not more than 12 weeks to complete.

Award recipients are expected to adhere to their proposed start and end dates as much as possible and to spend at least 4 weeks and not more than 12 weeks contiguously in Mongolia.
- All travel between the US and Mongolia that uses funds from the fellowship program must meet the provisions of the Fly America Act. Details about these provisions will be provided to Fellowship recipients.
- A portion of the fellowship stipend will be withheld until the recipient submits their final report on their fellowship experience. The final report will include reflections on both the programs conducted, and how the experience is expected to impact future academic and career development.
- Award recipients are responsible for paying all taxes related to their awards. The fellowship funds awarded are generally considered income in the United States, and therefore must be reported to the tax authorities. The ACMS bears no responsibility for withholding or remitting taxes related to these awards.
- Fellows are responsible for ensuring proper medical and evacuation insurance coverage during their time in Mongolia. Proof of insurance coverage will be required before disbursement of fellowship funds.
- The ACMS reserves the right to adjust the amounts and types of awards given under this program, as well as the general terms and conditions, before award agreements are reached with each recipient.
The ACMS offices in the US and Ulaanbaatar are available to assist the scholars chosen for the program to prepare for their project in Mongolia by providing pre-departure information on Mongolia, assisting with logistics such as travel arrangements to and from Mongolia and within the country, helping to locate research materials and local contacts, assisting with the fellows’ living arrangements (if applicable), and overseeing the projects during their time in Mongolia. Previous experience working or studying in Mongolia is not a requirement to apply for this program, but applicants should demonstrate an ability to successfully complete their proposed project.
Applicants without prior experience in Mongolia are especially encouraged to contact the ACMS at firstname.lastname@example.org for guidance about particular aspects of their project proposals.
All participants are required to submit a final report on their fellowship experience that reflects on both their proposed project and how the experience might impact their academic or career development. Poster presentations are organized at the Association of Asian Studies annual meeting to allow participants an opportunity to report on their research experience, and recipients are encouraged to participate if possible.
