Russian Empire, but the research topic must still be predominantly a historical study of Russia
For the Research Fellowship only:

However, preference will be given for archival research in Eastern Europe and/or Eurasia.
- [This does not apply in 2023-2024 – The research must be conducted primarily in the Russian Federation, but the fellowship may be used to conduct research for a briefer period in secondary site(s) in one other former Soviet republic or territory once forming part of the Russian empire (NOTE: The fellowship does not support research in North America).]
