CREEES invites applications for the Wayne Vucinich Visiting Scholar Fellowship.

This is a twelve-week residential fellowship to be offered in Spring 2014. The fellowship award funds international travel, health insurance, and visa support, in addition to a $10,000 stipend for living expenses. The fellow will have access to university libraries and archives and will have use of a shared work space at the Center. He or she will be expected to be in residence throughout the fellowship period (March-June 2014) and to participate actively in the scholarly activities of the Center.

This year preference will be given to proposals focusing on Central Asia from a comparative or transnational perspective.

A PhD is required in hand at the time the residency begins. We particularly encourage scholars who have completed the PhD (or equivalent) in the past five years and who are residents of countries that fall under the direct purview of the Center: Russia, East Europe, the Caucasus, and Central Asia (including Afghanistan).

Please submit a cover letter (one page outlining your current research and interest in the fellowship), a Curriculum Vitae, a writing sample, two letters of recommendation, and a short proposal for a public lecture and/or workshop(s) for Stanford graduate students via e-mail to Jovana Knezevic, CREEES Associate Director, by November 30, 2013.  (There is no application form. Please submit only the documents requested.)
