GRANT- Deadline Reminder: NCEEER Short-Term Travel Grants

Posted by: Shoshana Billik <>

The deadline for the first round of NCEEER Title VIII Short-Term Travel
Grants for Research in Central Asia, the Caucasus, and the Balkans is
Monday, December 15th, 2008. The Short-Term Travel Grant program for
research on Central Asia, the Caucasus, and the Balkans provides a maximum
award of $3,000 for research on the countries of Central Asia, the
Caucasus, and the Balkans. To qualify, applicants must be U.S.-based
scholars or researchers holding a Ph.D., or individuals with comparable
research experience in any discipline of the humanities and social
sciences or other professional terminal graduate degree. This competition
is held twice annually, with applications due December 15, 2008 and April
15, 2009. Funds are generally available to the winners as early as two
months after the competition deadline.

While a wide range of topics receive support each year, all Title
VIII-funded research must contribute to a body of knowledge enabling the
U.S. to better understand the region and to formulate effective policies.
Applicants to NCEEER programs must thus demonstrate, directly or
indirectly, how their research impacts upon current policy debates and
research on such issues. In addition, applicants must be U.S. citizens or
permanent residents.

Applications are available for download at the following URL:

or by contacting the NCEEER office at the address below. Applications and
all supporting materials must be received by the application deadline


NCEEER was created in 1978 to develop and sustain long-term, high-quality
programs for post-doctoral research on the social, political, economic,
environmental, and historical development of Eurasia and Central and
Eastern Europe. From broad, cross-cultural analyses to more focused
studies of particular problems, NCEEER supports research projects that
facilitate a mutually beneficial exchange of information between scholars
and policy-makers and contribute to a better understanding of current
developments and future prospects in the post-communist countries of
Europe and Eurasia.
