FELLOWSHIP- Central Asia-Caucasus Institute, Johns Hopkins University

Posted by: SAIS Central Asia <>

The Central Asia-Caucasus Institute (CACI), at Johns Hopkins
University's School of Advanced International Studies, invites young
scholars to apply for short-term fellowships to do research in the
Washington, DC area. Successful candidates should be the U.S.
citizens, should have completed a Ph.D., either have an academic
appointment, should be teaching in the U.S. institutions of higher
education, employed by a think tank in an analytical role, or work for
the government. Finally, all individuals should have a strong interest
in Central Asia, the Caucasus or Afghanistan, and a demonstrated
interest in current international policy issues. Strong preference
will be given to those scholars who live far from Washington to
provide them access to the unparalleled resources of Washington
(including archives, libraries, organizations, experts, media) and who
have had little direct contact with the policy-making process
affecting their regions of study. This Program parallels a second
Fellowship Program open to young men and women from the region.

Those interested in being considered for this fellowship should send
their applications to Mr. David Soumbadze ( by
October 27, 2008, including:

1) Detailed curriculum vitae, including information on the candidate's
education, professional experience, publications, etc.

2) A concise description (up to 1200 words) of the project to be
pursued while in Washington, including a discussion of the project's
relevance to current policy issues involving Central Asia, the
Caucasus and Afghanistan.

The fellowships are one month in duration and the starting date is
flexible. The program will cover a round trip transportation to
Washington (up to $ 400), and a stipend of $ 3,000. Winners will be
notified by November 4, 2008.
