Just a friendly reminder that the deadline to apply for The Council of American Overseas Research Centers (CAORC) Multi-Country Research fellowship is just six weeks away!  This award supports international Ph.D. and post-doctoral research in the humanities, social sciences, and allied natural sciences.  This is one of the only awards that funds overseas research in more than one country.  It is ideal for scholars for doing comparative or cross-regional studies.

The CAORC Multi-Country Fellowship Program supports advanced regional or trans-regional research in the humanities, social sciences, or allied natural sciences for U.S. doctoral candidates, and scholars who have already earned their Ph.D. Preference will be given to candidates examining comparative and/or cross-regional research. Applicants are eligible to apply as individuals or in teams.
Scholars must carry out research in two or more countries outside the United States, at least one of which hosts a participating American overseas research center. Approximately nine awards of up to $12,000 each will be given in the doctoral candidate/post-doctoral scholar competition.
Deadline: Tuesday, January 17, 2012
