Deadline: October 15, 2019
The Center for Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies (CREEES) at Stanford University invites applications for the Wayne Vucinich Fellowship.
This is a 12-week residential fellowship to be offered in the period between January 13-June 19, 2020 (actual dates of residence will be determined in consultation with the selected fellow). The fellowship is open to scholars in any discipline whose research focuses on historical or contemporary topics in Russia, East Europe, the Caucasus, or Central Asia. Scholars who have received the PhD within the past five years are eligible to apply. (A PhD in hand is required at the time the residency begins.) Preference will be given to scholars who are residents of countries that fall under the direct purview of the Center: Russia, East Europe, the Caucasus, and Central Asia.
During the fellowship period, the Vucinich Fellow is expected to pursue independent research in residence and to participate actively in the scholarly activities of the Center. The fellow will hold a lecture, seminar, or workshop on their research. The fellow will have access to Stanford University Libraries and the use of a shared work space at the Center.
The fellowship award funds international travel, health insurance, and a visa, in addition to a $12,000 stipend for living expenses.
A complete application consists of an online application form, a letter of application (including a research project description), a Curriculum Vitae, a writing sample, two letters of recommendation, and a short proposal for a public lecture and/or workshop. Applications will be accepted until October 15, 2019.
