Funding for fellowships for US citizens is provided by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) of the U.S. Department of State through a grant from the Council of American Overseas Research Centers (CAORC). When available, funding for fellowships for non-US citizens is provided by AIPS unrestricted funds. All applications will undergo a competitive review. The review committee may prioritize applicants who have not received an AIPS fellowship in the past two years.

The amount of the ECA-funded stipends will be comparable to Fulbright Awards and will be determined by the Fellowships Committee based on availability of funds and current rates as defined by the US State Department. Please be aware that there are limited funds for research proposals for Non-US Citizens. Total fellowship support can range from $3,000 to $25,000.

All applicants must be current AIPS individual members ($25/year) at the time of the application review.
