US-Mongolia Field Research Fellowship

Mongolia Summer 2010

The American Center for Mongolian Studies (ACMS), with funding support
from the US Department of State Education and Cultural Affairs Bureau,
is pleased to announce the fifth year of the ACMS US-Mongolia Field
Research Fellowship Program to support student field research in
Mongolia in summer or fall 2010. The program will provide $500-$3000
grants to approximately 5 students from US universities to conduct
academic field research in Mongolia between May and October 2010.
Student applicants can be at an advanced undergraduate, masters or
pre-dissertation doctoral level, and all fields of study are eligible.
Applicants must be either US citizens or permanent residents currently
enrolled full-time in a university or college in the United States.
Students graduating in spring 2010 are eligible to apply. No previous
experience in Mongolia required.

DEADLINE TO APPLY: March 1, 2010


The field research project should be conducted in conjunction with a
Research Sponsor, such as a faculty member or senior researcher, and
involve at least 6 weeks of fieldwork in Mongolia. Preference is given
to projects in which the Research Sponsor will work directly with the
student researcher in the field in Mongolia. To open the program to
more potential collaborations, in 2010 the program will continue to
consider funding well designed projects that demonstrate close
collaboration between the student researcher and the Research Sponsor,
even if the Research Sponsor is unable to travel to Mongolia to
oversee the field research work. There are no eligibility restrictions
with regards to the Research Sponsor's citizenship.
