Carnegie Research Fellowship Program
"I would like to express my thanks to the Carnegie Research Fellowship for the good chance to participate and to be a fellow of this scholarship. The NCEEER staff made me feel very welcome on my first visit to the United States. It was a good opportunity for my future professional development and career. It was an unforgettable time because I've found new friends, and learned about the American style of life, holidays and traditions."

Established in January 2001 by the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Carnegie Research Fellowship Program brings Russian and former Soviet scholars to the United States for short-term, non-degree research at American universities and research institutions. All fellows spend up to four months at their host universities conducting research on specific topics in their fields and write a 15 to 30-page academic paper for presentation upon the fellow's return home. It is expected that returning fellows will actively participate in the development of the program activities of the CASE with which they are affiliated. Fellows are also expected to present their work at conferences and receive peer evaluation of the results of their research.
Participants in this program receive the following: round-trip airfare from their home cities to the host universities in the United States; pre-departure orientation; an academic orientation in Washington, DC or Seattle; visa support; a monthly stipend; health insurance; a professional development fund; access to libraries and archives; and support for membership in international professional associations in their field. A select number of successful participants are designated as George F. Russell fellows and placed at the University of Washington.

The CRFP competition is open to university, faculty, researches, advanced graduate students, and scholars in the social sciences and humanities from the countries of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine. The deadline to apply for this year's competition is April 30, 2013.
A primary goal of this program has been to integrate Russian and former Soviet social scientists and humanists into the work of regional Centers for Advanced Study and Education (CASEs), originally supported by the Carnegie Corporation of New York and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, in cooperation with the Kennan Institute, INO-Center Moscow, and the Russian Ministry of Higher Education. The CASEs have become magnets for scholars who both teach and undertake research through their auspices. The mission of this multi-year commitment has been to strengthen regional universities, restore academic communities, foster a new generation of social scientists and humanists, and integrate scholars from Russian and former Soviet regions into collegial communities with their Western colleagues.
