Studies program at the Woodrow Wilson Center.  I have attached the

EAST EUROPEAN STUDIES
WOODROW WILSON INTERNATIONAL CENTER FOR SCHOLARS

NOTE: An individual may apply for only one category of support per 
fiscal year.


RESEARCH SCHOLAR COMPETITION

East European Studies has been awarded funds by the Soviet-East 
European Research and Training Act of 1983 (Title VIII) of the U.S. 
Department of State's Authorization Act for its Research Scholar 
grant. These scholarships are available to American citizens (or 
permanent residents) in the early stages of their academic careers 
(generally before tenure but after Ph.D.) or American scholars whose 
careers have been interrupted or delayed. For non-academics, an 
equivalent degree of professional achievement is expected.

Research scholarships will be awarded for three months of research 
in Washington, D.C. at a stipend of $3,000 per month. Office space 
at the Wilson Center and a research assistant will be provided 
whenever possible. This is residential program requiring visiting 
scholars to remain in the Washington, D.C. area and to forego other 
academic and professional obligations for the duration of the grant. 
Access to the Library of Congress, the National Archives, and other 
resources of the Washington area will be facilitated.

The applicant must submit a concise description of his/her research 
project, a curriculum vita, a completed application form available 
for download at www.wilsoncenter.org/ees/grants.htm, and three 
letters specifically in support of the research to be conducted at 
the Center. The deadline for receipt of applications and supporting 
materials is November 1. Applicants are notified approximately ten 
weeks after the closing date. Grantees can start their appointments 
as early as May.



SHORT-TERM GRANTS
(one month duration)

With funding provided by Title VIII (Soviet and East European 
Research and Training Act), East European Studies offers short-term 
grants to scholars having particular need for the library, archival, 
and other specialized resources of the Washington, D.C. area. This 
program is limited to American citizens (or permanent residents) at 
the advanced graduate and postdoctoral level and to an equivalent 
degree of professional achievement for those from other fields. 
Short-term grants provide a stipend of $100 per day for one month 
(for a maximum of $3,000). This program requires visiting scholars 
to remain in the Washington, D.C. area and to forego other academic 
and professional obligations for the duration of the grant. No 
office space, however, is provided.

The applicant must submit a concise description of his/her research 
project, a curriculum vita, a statement on preferred and alternate 
dates of residence in Washington, D.C., and two letters specifically 
in support of the research to be conducted at the Center. Members of 
the East European Academic Council review applications at regular 
intervals throughout the year. Closing dates are December 1, March 
1, June 1, and September 1. Applicants are notified approximately 
four weeks after the closing date.



JUNIOR SCHOLARS TRAINING SEMINAR

East European Studies of the Woodrow Wilson Center and the Committee 
on East European Studies of the American Council of Learned 
Societies are soliciting applications for the fourteenth annual 
training seminar for junior scholars in East European studies, to be 
held 10-13 August, 2001, at the historic Wye Conference Center on 
the Chesapeake Bay in southern Maryland.  These scholarships are 
available only to American citizens or permanent residents. All 
transportation, accommodation, and meal costs will be covered by the 
sponsors. Graduate students enrolled in a doctoral program at an 
American university, who have completed all requirements and 
research for the Ph.D. except the dissertation (and scholars who 
received their Ph.D.s in 1998 or later) in any field of East 
European or Baltic studies are eligible to apply.  Russia and the 
Soviet successor states are excluded. Participants will present 
their research, discuss the works of other junior scholars, and 
exchange impressions of the state of the field with a group of 
senior scholars.

The application must include the following items:

1. a completed application form (which may be downloaded from 
www.wilsoncenter.org/ees/grants.htm#junior)
2. a curriculum vitae (which must include social security number, 
institution where degree is expected or was received, title of 
doctoral dissertation, and name and department of doctoral advisor)
3. a single page, single-spaced statement of the work you wish to 
discuss, either the dissertation or another project; and
4. one letter of recommendation from Ph.D. advisor
