Fellowship – American Center for Mongolian Studies Research Fellowship Program

Application Deadline: February 15, 2009

The American Center for Mongolian Studies (ACMS), with funding support
from the Henry Luce Foundation, is pleased to announce the second year
of the American Center for Mongolian Studies (ACMS) Research
Fellowship Program. The ACMS Research Fellowship Program annually
supports three fellows to conduct up to 12-months of doctoral
dissertation or post-doctoral research in Mongolia on topics in the
Social Sciences or Humanities. Previous Mongolian Studies experience
is not required, but projects should enhance knowledge of Mongolia and
the Mongols within relevant academic disciplines or fields of study.
Projects that link research conducted in Mongolia to research in other
parts of Asia or across academic fields are especially encouraged.

Fellowship awards will include travel expenses to and from Mongolia,
an accommodation and food allowance, and a stipend to cover research
expenses. Fellows will also have the opportunity to take intensive
Mongolian language courses, select resources for inclusion in the ACMS
Library, and participate in an annual academic seminar in Mongolia
that will bring together international, regional and local scholars
and students.

Research work under this program must begin between September 2009 and
March 2010, and last for a continuous 6-12 months. Fellowship
recipients will be based in Mongolia for the duration of their
fellowship, but research travel in the broader region is encouraged.
Dissertation fellows must have an approved dissertation proposal prior
to the start of their research work under the fellowship, and
Post-Doctoral fellows must begin their fellowship work within seven
years of the granting of their doctoral degree. Fellowship recipients
must be US or Canadian citizens attending or recently graduated from a
university in the US or Canada.
