INFORMATION ON GRANTS AND SCHOLARSHIPS

IREX (the International Research & Exchanges Board) is an international nonprofit organization specializing in education, independent media, Internet development, and civil society programs. Through training, partnerships, education, research, and grant programs, IREX develops the capacity of individuals and institutions to contribute to their societies. Since its founding in 1968, IREX has supported over 15,000 students, scholars, policymakers, business leaders, journalists, and other professionals.

IREX addresses the needs of US researchers throughout their careers by providing opportunities for master's, predoctoral, postdoctoral, and senior scholars. Some programs sponsor research in humanities in the countries of the former USSR. Such are:

The Individual Advanced Research Opportunities Program (IARO) provides fellowships to predoctoral and postdoctoral scholars from the United States for individual long-term research in Europe and Eurasia. Limited funding is available for cross-regional research in Turkey, Mongolia, and Iran for postdoctoral humanities scholars.

The Short-Term Travel Grants program provides fellowships for up to eight weeks to US postdoctoral scholars and holders of other professional terminal graduate degrees for independent or collaborative research projects in Europe and Eurasia. Grants must not require administrative assistance or logistical support. Fellowships in Policy Research and Development are available to applicants who demonstrate how their research will make a substantive contribution to knowledge of the contemporary political, economic, historical, or cultural developments in the region and how such knowledge is relevant to US foreign policy.

Starr Collaborative Research Program. In an effort to promote regional understanding and cooperation, this program provides funding to research projects focusing on issues of practical relevance and current interest to the academic, corporate, and policy-making communities on media and the Internet, within the countries of Eurasia, the Near East and Asia. This region is defined to include: Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, China, Georgia, Iran, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Pakistan, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan. The collaborative research program is made possible by support from The Starr Foundation.
