US-Mongolia Field Research Fellowship Program 2006

The American Center for Mongolian Studies (ACMS)

The American Center for Mongolian Studies (ACMS) in conjunction with the Council of American Overseas Research Centers (CAORC) and the US Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) is pleased to announce the creation of the US-Mongolia Field Research Program to support academic research projects in Mongolia by US and Mongolian students in summer or fall 2006.

The program is expected to support approximately 3 students from US universities and 6 students from Mongolian universities to conduct field research in Mongolia between May and December 2006. Applicants must be either US or Mongolian citizens or permanent residents currently enrolled full-time in a university or college in the United States or Mongolia.

Undergraduate applicants must have at least third year standing in their program, while graduate applicants can be at a masters or pre-dissertation doctoral level.

The student research work for the US-Mongolia Field Research Fellowship Program must be conducted under the supervision of a Research Sponsor who plans to be on site in Mongolia in summer 2006. No independent field research projects by students will be supported under this fellowship.
The Research Sponsor should have previous experience conducting academic field research, and must agree to oversee the student's research project in the field including a period of direct oversight.

The field research project should last a minimum of 6 weeks, and be conducted in Mongolia between May and December 2006. Mongolian students are expected to work with a Research Sponsor from a US-based institution, while US students may work with either US or Mongolia based Research Sponsors.

Research projects in any field, including humanities, sciences and social sciences are eligible. Final selection will be made by a selection committee, and the students selected will reflect a diversity of academic levels, fields of study, gender and other characteristics.

Funding for the program is provided by the Council of American Overseas Research Centers (CAORC) and the US State Department Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
