Fellowships for Advanced Multi-Country Research

The Council of American Overseas Research Center


The CAORC assists scholars specialized in areas of the world where research exchange is lacking to set up appropriate mechanisms to enhance and facilitate advanced research. The CAORC Regional Research Program is intended to create opportunities for regional research at overseas research centers and thereby institutionalize a regional approach into the mechanisms which support research abroad. Fellowships require scholars to conduct research in more than one country, at least one of which hosts a participating American overseas research center. The program is funded by the United States Information Agency. It is anticipated that eight (8) awards will be given to scholars who wish to carry out research on broad questions of multi-country significance in the fields of humanities, social sciences, and related natural sciences. Fellowship tenure must be of at least three (3) months duration.


* All applicants must be U.S. citizens.
* Doctoral candidates who have completed all Ph.D. requirements with the exception of the dissertation and established post-doctoral scholars are eligible to apply.
* Preference will be given to candidates examining comparative and/or cross-cultural questions requiring research in two or more countries.


Fellowships are envisioned as small grants, carrying maximum of $6,000 for stipend and up to $3,000 for travel.
