National Endowment for the Humanities Grant for Collaborative Research
in Eurasia and Eastern Europe

American Councils for International Education: ACTR/ACCELS (American
Councils) and the National Council for Eurasian and East European
Research (NCEEER) are now accepting applications for the 2008-2009 NEH
Collaborative Humanities Fellowship. Application deadline: February 15.

NEH grants provide up to $40,000 for four to nine months of research
in Eurasia and Eastern Europe for U.S. post-doctoral scholars.
Research topics are not restricted to regional or area studies, but
must involve at least one collaborator from the region and research in
the region itself. Applicants must propose to conduct at least four
months of full-time research, of which two months must be spent
overseas. Scholars who are able to begin their projects between May
2008 and May 2009 are welcome to apply to this year's competition.
Funding is available through American Councils and NCEEER from
National Endowment for the Humanities grant support.

American Councils and NCEEER encourage applications from scholars
proposing innovative, interdisciplinary approaches to their subjects,
and all applications receive equal consideration during the selection
process. Program organizers support the work of U.S. humanists from
fields that have been underrepresented in scholarship on Eastern
Europe and Eurasia in the past, such as American studies, art history,
comparative literature, cultural anthropology, musicology, and
philosophy, as well as projects that strengthen international academic
linkages beyond the traditional regional centers. All awards place a
premium on the potential for further valuable humanistic collaboration
beyond the specific award period of the NEH fellowship. U.S.
citizenship, permanent resident status, or residency in the U.S. for
three years before date of application is required.

Application Deadline: February 15, 2008
