Short-Term Research Grant for Postdoctoral, Adjunct Faculty and Independent Scholars

This NEW grant is open to U.S. citizen postdoctoral, adjunct, community college, HBCU/MSI faculty, and visiting or independent scholars whose access to institutional funding for research travel may be limited. 

For these scholars, ARCE will offer a short-term travel grant designed to support research travel to Egypt. Minimum stay is three weeks; maximum stay is six weeks. During this period the grantee will conduct research pertaining to a new or ongoing research project. Eligibility, fields of study, application and selection processes mirror those of the ARCE fellowships already on offer including but not limited to: Anthropology, Archaeology, Architecture, Art, Art History, Comparative Literature, Coptic Studies, Economics, Egyptology, Ethnomusicology, Gender Studies, History, Humanistic Social Sciences, Islamic Studies, Literature, Music, Political Science, and Religious Studies.

The U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs funds the fellowship through a grant to the Council of American Overseas Research Centers (CAORC). One $2640 grant plus round-trip airfare is awarded in years when qualified candidates apply.
