The Council of American Overseas Research Centers (CAORC) Multi-Country Fellowship Program supports advanced regional or transregional research in the humanities, social sciences, or allied natural sciences for US doctoral candidates and scholars who have already earned their PhD. Preference will be given to candidates examining comparative and/or crossregional research. Applicants are eligible to apply as individuals or in teams.
Scholars must carry out research in two or more countries outside the United States, at least one of which hosts a participating American overseas research center. Approximately nine awards of up to $12,600 each will be given. Funding is provided by the US Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
The deadline for applications is December 6, 2023. Notification of fellowship status will be made available to each applicant via email in late March 2024. Fellows are advised that it can take up to six months to obtain necessary research clearances and should plan accordingly.
