FELLOWSHIP- American Center for Mongolian Studies Field Research Fellowship

Posted by: Brian White - ACMS <>

Application Deadline: March 1, 2009

The American Center for Mongolian Studies (ACMS), with funding support
from the Council for American Overseas Research Centers (CAORC), is
pleased to announce the fourth year of the ACMS US-Mongolia Field
Research Fellowship Program to support student field research in
Mongolia in summer or fall 2009. The program will provide $500-$3000
grants to approximately 5-10 students from US or Mongolian
universities to conduct academic field research in Mongolia between
May and October 2009. Student applicants can be at an advanced
undergraduate, masters or pre-dissertation doctoral level, and all
fields of study are eligible. Applicants must be either US or
Mongolian citizens or permanent residents currently enrolled full-time
in a university or college in the United States or Mongolia. Students
graduating in spring 2009 are eligible to apply.

The field research project should be conducted in conjunction with a
Research Sponsor, such as a faculty member or senior researcher, and
involve at least 6 weeks of fieldwork in Mongolia. Preference is given
to projects in which the Research Sponsor will work directly with the
student researcher in the field in Mongolia. To open the program to
more potential collaborations, in 2009 the program will consider
funding well designed projects that demonstrate close collaboration
between the student researcher and the Research Sponsor, even if the
Research Sponsor is unable to travel to Mongolia to oversee the field
research work. Mongolian students are required to work with a Research
Sponsor from a US-based institution, while US students may work with
either US or Mongolia based Research Sponsors. Faculty and researchers
from the United States are encouraged to identify and assist promising
Mongolian students who might qualify for this program.
