The American Center for Mongolian Studies (AMCS) US-Mongolia Field Research Fellowship supports short-term field research projects in Mongolia by students, university and college faculty and other researchers. In order to foster collaborations between student and faculty researchers, joint applications for research fellowships are highly encouraged, although not required. The ACMS-Mongolia Field Research Fellowship Program is funded by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State through a grant from the Council of American Overseas Research Centers.
Applicants must be US citizens currently enrolled full-time (students) or employed at least part-time (post-docs and faculty) at a university or college. Students graduating in Spring 2013 are eligible for the program. Undergraduate applicants must have at least third year standing in their program, while graduate applicants can be at masters, pre-dissertation, or doctoral candidacy level. Post-doctoral scholars and faculty must regularly teach at least one course at a US university or college to be eligible. The program priority for post-doctoral scholars and faculty is to support individuals from non-research intensive universities and colleges, especially those who are helping guide student research projects or who can show how the fellowship experience will enhance their teaching and outreach.
