The American Center of Oriental Research (ACOR) offers two or more ACOR-CAORC Post-Graduate Fellowships for research in Jordan. These awards are made possible through CAORC (Council of American Overseas Research Centers) and funded by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the United States Department of State. Proposed topics may be in any sub-discipline within the natural and social sciences or humanities, and may focus on antiquity, the medieval period, or the modern era. Awards may be subject to funding.
Research topics are broadly interpreted and should contribute to scholarship in Near Eastern studies. The holders of the fellowships are expected to participate in the scholarly and cultural activity of the ACOR community while in residence.
The applicant must hold the Ph.D. degree or the equivalent terminal degree in their field at the time of application and be a U.S. citizen
The fellowships will be offered for terms of two to six months. The maximum award for six months is $29,400 (which includes room and board at ACOR, transportation by a U.S. carrier, and a stipend). Two to five month awards will be proportionate. For residence over the stipulated term, regular room and board rates will be charged. Fellowships must be used between September 1, 2011 and September 1, 2012.
