Title VIII Short-Term Travel Grants for Research in Central Asia, the Caucasus, and the Balkans

The National Council for Eurasian and East European Research invites proposals for its Title VIII Short-term Travel Grant Program for Research on Central Asia, the Caucasus, and the Balkans. This fellowship provides a maximum award of $3,000 for research for up to two months on the countries of Central Asia, the Caucasus, and the Balkans. To qualify, applicants must be U.S.-based scholars or researchers holding a Ph.D., or individuals with comparable research experience in any discipline of the humanities and social sciences or other professional terminal graduate degree. The Short-Term Travel Grant program is meant to support research that is relevant to United States policy. Projects in fields such as history, popular culture, and other matters that may be outside the immediate purview of government officials are eligible for funding, as long as the applicant explains convincingly why the research is relevant at some level to the formation of policy.

Due December 15, 2008 and April 15, 2009
