The Society for the Anthropology of Europe and the Council for European Studies jointly sponsor a pre-dissertation fellowship in anthropology. We are pleased to announce that the deadline for submission has been extended to February 1, 2017.
Doctoral candidates in anthropology at U.S. and Canadian universities are eligible to apply. The fellowship supports short-term (two to three months) independent research in Europe for the purpose of testing the feasibility and research design of a projected doctoral dissertation in the social/cultural anthropology of contemporary Europe. The typical grantee is a second or third-year graduate student who has, or is close to, completing course work and/or Ph.D. qualifying exams, but who has neither fully formulated nor defended a dissertation prospectus.
The fellowship carries a stipend of $5,000. Funds may not be used for language courses or instruction at a European university, or to supplement a comparable or larger fellowship for research in Europe.
Proposals will be reviewed by a committee appointed jointly by the Society for the Anthropology of Europe and the Council for European Studies. The grantee is expected to send a report to both organizations.
The application for 2017, fellowship information, eligibility requirements, and FAQ can be found on the CES awards page.
