Upcoming Deadlines: George F. Kennan Fellowship and Title VIII Short Term Grant

The Kennan Institute is holding the next round of competitions for its George F. Kennan Fellowships and Title VIII Short Term Grants. Descriptions of these grants are listed below, and information about all grants can be found at:

George F. Kennan Fellows - Deadline: September 1, 2017

Fellows will be based at the Wilson Center in Washington, D.C. for three-month residencies focused on diverse, policy-oriented sectors such as media, business, local government, law, civil society, and academia to examine important political, social, economic, cultural, and historical issues in Russia, Ukraine, and the region. Among the aims of the new fellowships are to build bridges between traditional academia and the policy world, as well as to maintain and increase collaboration among researchers from Russia, Ukraine, the U.S., and around the globe. The fellowships are funded by a grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York. There are no citizenship requirements for this grant.

Applications may apply individually or as a team. If applying as a team of two (or three) applicants, the applicants must be citizens of at least two different countries.

Title VIII-Supported Short-Term Grants - Deadline: September 15, 2017

The Kennan Institute offers Title VIII Short-Term Grants to scholars whose research in the social sciences or humanities focuses on Russia Ukraine, and the countries of Eurasia, and who demonstrate a particular need to utilize the library, archival, and other specialized resources of the Washington, D.C. area. Policy-relevant research is preferred. Academic participants must either possess a doctoral degree or be doctoral candidates who have nearly completed their dissertations. For non-academics, an equivalent degree of professional achievement is expected. Only U.S. citizens are eligible for Title VIII Short-Term Grants.
