Wadsworth Short-Term Fellowships are intended to provide support for doctoral students or post-doctoral scholars who are within ten years of receiving their doctorate to enhance their research capacity in the field of anthropology. The fellowship may be used for the following purposes:
1. To pursue research in a library outside the applicant’s home country. The fellowship enables scholars to make use of international-level library resources. Applicants are expected to prepare an anthropological research proposal or complete an anthropological project designed to advance teaching and scholarship in the applicant’s home country.
2. To take advantage of a training opportunity outside the applicant’s home country. This fellowship can be used to enable scholars to enhance their research skills in anthropology through training in state-of-the-art research techniques and methodologies. These awards are available only to individuals from countries where anthropology is underrepresented and where there are limited resources to send students overseas for training.
The fellowships are not renewable. The length of the library or training visit should normally be no more than 3 months in duration. The award can be used towards relevant expenses for travel, subsistence, fees, insurance, books, etc.
