ARISC Junior Research Fellowship

The American Research Institute of the South Caucasus (ARISC) announces the
availability of US graduate student, postdoctoral and junior scholar
fellowships in support of research and mentoring activities in the South
Caucasus (Armenia, Azerbaijan, and/or Georgia). The goals of the fellowship
are 1) to support research in and the study of the South Caucasus; 2) to
select, recognize and financially support individuals early in their careers
who demonstrate high potential to contribute to research in this region; 3) to
support a mentoring relationship that will both develop the academic skills of
the mentee and strengthen ties between the US and host country. Projects in
all fields in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences are
eligible, but all projects must include one or more undergraduate and/or
graduate students from Armenia, Azerbaijan, and/or Georgia as research
assistants/participants. Research awards will be made for a maximum of $5000
each to help cover travel, living, and research expenses in the South
Caucasus; an additional $500 may be made available for fellows to offset
necessary expenses related to incorporating an undergraduate or graduate
student in the host country in their research program. For ARISC grant
purposes, mentoring is understood to involve integrating a local scholar into
a research project in a fundamental way that involves cultivating skills and
knowledge of methods that will contribute to the professional development of
the local scholar. Proposals will be judged on their quality and on the
potential of the research to strengthen scholarship on the South Caucasus. 

Application Requirements: 
Please send a complete application including the application form, a project
statement of not more than 1500 words, work schedule, budget, and curriculum

recommendation must also be submitted. Letters of recommendation should be
sent directly from your referee via email to info “at” arisc.org. All
information must be received by Tuesday, December 23, 2014, in order for the
