ACMS Field Research Fellowship 2021 open for applicationsSociety
Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/. The American Center for Mongolian Studies (ACMS), with funding support from the US State Department Educational and Cultural Affairs Bureau and the Council of American Overseas Research Centers, invites applications for the eighth year for the ACMS Field Research Fellowship Program.
The program will provide awards of up to $4,000 for student, post-doctoral, or faculty to conduct short-term field research in Mongolia in 2021 if travel conditions allow.
“Travel to and from Mongolia remains highly restricted due to COVID-19 regulations, and it is unknown when or if travel to Mongolia will resume in 2021. If travel remains restricted, researchers selected for the Field Research Fellowship will be able to defer their field research projects to 2022” reports the ACMS.
Open to US citizens currently enrolled full-time (students) or employed at least part-time (post-docs and faculty) at a university or college or students who have just graduated, the program will fund research projects in any field, including humanities, sciences and social sciences that will support the development of US-Mongolian cooperation.
