Kennan Institute Title VIII Research Scholarship Application - Fillable PDF
Title VIII Research Scholarships lasting three to nine months are available to academic participants in the early stages of their career (before tenure) or scholars whose careers have been interrupted or delayed. For non-academics, an equivalent degree of professional achievement is expected. Eligibility is limited to the postdoctoral level for academic participants, although doctoral candidates in the process of completing a dissertation may apply (the dissertation must be successfully defended before taking residence at the Kennan Institute). Applicants must be U.S. Citizens. Those proposals related to regional Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Central Asia, the Caucasus and contemporary issues are particularly welcome. The Title VIII Research Scholar grant offers a stipend of $3,300 per month, research facilities, computer support, and some research assistance. Grant recipients are required to be in residence at the Institute in Washington, D.C. for the duration of their grant.
One round of competitive Title VIII Research Scholar selection is held per year. The deadline for receipt of applications and supporting materials is December 1, 2013. Application materials must be submitted by mail; materials sent by electronic mail or facsimilie will not be considered. Decisions on appointment will be made in mid-February; grantees are able to commence their appointments as early as July. If you plan to apply, please e-mail email@example.com to inform us of your intention.
Research Scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis. Applications are reviewed by the Kennan Institute’s Advisory Council at its annual meeting. Recommendations from the Advisory Council are approved by the Director and Deputy Director of the Wilson Center. The Council bases its recommendations on the following criteria:
- the potential contribution of the scholar to the intellectual life of the Institute and the policymaking community;
- importance and originality of the project;
- policy relevance;
- applicant’s scholarly promise, achievements, and ability to complete the project;
- likelihood that the finished product will advance basic understanding of the topic;
- need for the scholar to have access to the resources of Washington, D.C.
Continuation of the Research Scholar program in 2013-14 is contingent on future funding. The Research Scholar Program is supported by the Program for Research and Training on Eastern Europe and the Independent States of the Former Soviet Union (Title VIII) of the United States Department of State.
