The NYU Jordan Center for the Advanced Study of Russia is pleased to announce a new Short-Term Fellowship Program that will launch in the 2014-2015 academic year. Short-Term Fellowships are designed to facilitate research in local collections, expose visitors to the intellectual life of the Russian field at NYU and in the greater New York community, and acquaint faculty and graduate students at NYU with the most recent world-wide trends in the study of Russia.
The fellowship program is geared toward scholars who have earned their doctoral degrees or equivalents. Fellowships can be awarded for use during any period of the year, lasting up to a maximum of one month. Candidates should supply a one-page written description of their current research and demonstrate their need to conduct research and open professional contacts in the New York area; a CV; a list of at least three referees; and up to three preferred time-periods for a proposed visit. Stipends of up $5,000 may be used for travel, housing, or daily expenses. Awardees will be expected to participate in the activities of the Jordan Center and to present their work to colleagues and graduate students. Awardees will be given an NYU affiliation, shared office space, and access to NYU libraries. The Jordan Center does not secure housing.
Application Deadline: May 1, 2014
