The awards are targeted for research abroad and particularly for cases where other support is not available.

Long-term awards of six months to one year each (maximum award: $15,000) and short-term pilot awards of up to three months each (maximum award: $5,000) are available. Award amounts will vary, according to the project and proposed budget, with the precise award amounts to be determined by the Fellowship Selection Committee. The Institute will not provide funding for students who receive awards from other sources for the same project.
Applicants’ dissertation or pilot study topics must have theoretical or comparative significance and may include one or more regional foci, such as Africa, Latin America, or Europe. Students in the social sciences, humanities, and professional schools are eligible to apply.
