Kennan Institute Summer Research Grants

Scholars who conduct research in the social sciences or humanities focusing on the former Soviet Union (excluding the Baltic States), and who demonstrate a particular need to utilize the library, archival, and other specialized resources of the Washington, D.C., area can apply for the new summer research grants. The summer grants must be used between May-September 2010, and grant applicants are required to hold an MA degree or higher. The Summer Research Grants will provide a stipend of $100 per day. Travel and accommodation expenses are not directly covered by this grant. Applicants are required to submit a concise description (700-800 words) of his or her research project, curriculum vitae, a statement on preferred dates of residence in Washington, D.C., and two letters of recommendation specifically in support of the research to be conducted at the Institute.
