The American Center of Oriental Research (ACOR) offers two or more fellowships for M.A. and pre-doctoral students conducting research in Jordan. These awards are made possible through CAORC (Council of American Overseas Research Centers) and funded by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the United States Department of State. Proposed topics may be in any sub-discipline within the natural and social sciences or humanities, and may focus on antiquity, the medieval period, or the modern era. The applicant must be a U.S. citizen and an enrolled graduate student at the time of application.
Research topics are broadly interpreted and should contribute to scholarship in Near Eastern studies. The holders of the fellowships are expected to participate in the scholarly and cultural activity of the ACOR community while in residence.
The fellowships will be offered for terms of two to six months. The maximum award for six months is $23,800 (which includes room and board at ACOR, transportation by a U.S. carrier, stipend, and research funds). Two to five month awards will be proportionate. For residence over the stipulated term, regular room and board rates will be charged. Fellowships must be used between May 15, 2014 and December 31, 2015.
Applicants will be notified by April 15, 2014
