ACMS Research Fellowship 2011

The ACMS Research Fellowship Program will annually support three
fellows to conduct up to 12-months of doctoral dissertation or
post-doctoral research in Mongolia on topics in the Social Sciences or

clear areas in which the research furthers social, cultural,
political, or policy knowledge relevant to Mongolia or the region. All
applicants must be citizens of the US or Canada, and must be attending
or recently graduated from a university in the US or Canada. The
program seeks to promote research opportunities in Mongolia among
scholars who have not included the country in their previous research,
and to broaden the knowledge base of scholars already working in the
country. Previous Mongolian Studies experience is not required, but
projects should enhance knowledge of Mongolia and the Mongols within
relevant academic disciplines or fields of study. Projects that link
research conducted in Mongolia to research in other parts of Asia or
across academic fields are especially encouraged.  For further details
