SSRC Eurasia Program
2008 Predoctoral and Postdoctoral Fellowships Competition

The Eurasia Program, Social Science Research Council (SSRC) is pleased to announce its 2008-2009 Title VIII fellowship activities. Eurasia Program Title VIII Fellowships serve to expand and strengthen the field of Eurasian studies through the support of research, writing, advanced-training and curriculum development. All fellowships are intended to support work on or related to the New States of Eurasia, the Soviet Union and/or the Russian Empire, regardless of the applicant's discipline within the social sciences or humanities.

Online applications and supporting materials, including detailed award descriptions and eligibility criteria, are now available on the SSRC Eurasia Program website - www.ssrc.org/programs/eurasia/fellowships/index.page. Fellowships will be offered in three categories:

Predoctoral Fellowships target individuals at seminal stages of their graduate careers. They provide essential training opportunities for individuals in the early stages of their programs as well as support for advanced students in the intellectually challenging dissertation write-up stage of their work. Predissertation Training Fellowships provide up to $7,000 for graduate students who have not yet advanced to PhD candidacy. Dissertation Write-up Fellowships offer support in the amount of $22,000 for the 2008-2009 academic year.

Postdoctoral Fellowships support both independent scholars and university faculty at all levels. Postdoctoral Research Fellowships provide junior faculty, in particular those who have recently received PhDs, with $20,000 in support and afford their recipients concentrated time away from university obligations.

Please note: only U.S. citizens or permanent residents are eligible to apply.

Contact program staff at eurasia@ssrc.org if you have any questions or concerns.

Deadline for all fellowship applications is November 13, 2007 at 9:00 pm EST.
