These scholarships last 3-9 months for research examining Russia, Ukraine, and Eurasia. They are available to academics in the early stages of their career, particularly at the postdoctoral level; doctoral candidates may apply but must have defended their dissertation before starting the fellowship.
These short-term grants allow scholars in the social sciences or the humanities who are researching the former Soviet Union (policy-relevant research preferred), and who need to use the library, archival and other specialized resources of the Washington, DC area.
Fellowships will last one academic year to fellows from a broad range of social sciences and humanities. Topics should intersect with questions of public policy or provide a historical framework to illuminate policy issues of contemporary importance. Limited to the postdoctoral level.
