Grant Opportunities at the Kennan Institute
The Kennan Institute is pleased to announce a number of grant
opportunities that may be of interest to students and scholars studying
Russia, Ukraine, and the Eurasian region.
In particular, we are pleased to announce a new Title VIII 2-month
Summer Research Grant that can be used from May - September 2010.
This grant will be available to applicants who hold a MA degree or
higher. In addition, we also will be accepting applications for our
Research Scholar program in Washington, D.C., ranging from 3-9 months,
as well as for our one month Short-Term grants.
1. Summer Research Grant. Scholars who conduct research in the social
sciences or humanities focusing on the former Soviet Union (excluding
the Baltic States), and who demonstrate a particular need to utilize the
library, archival, and other specialized resources of the Washington,
D.C. area can apply for the new Summer Research grant. The summer grants
must be used between May-September 2010, and grant applicants are
required to hold an MA degree or higher. The Summer Research Grant will
provide a stipend of $3,200 per month, support for a summer intern, and
access to the facilities of the Kennan Institute, including its library.
The Kennan Institute cannot provide office space for Summer Grant
scholars. Travel and accommodation expenses also are not directly
covered by this grant.
2. Research Scholar Grants. The Kennan Institute offers resident grants
to scholars to utilize the unique resources of the Washington area. The
Title VIII Research Scholar program is open to academic participants in
the early stages of their career (before tenure) or scholars whose
careers have been interrupted or delayed, and provides
3 to 9 months of support--including office space, a research intern, and
special borrowing privileges at the Library of Congress.
3. Short-Term Grants. Title VIII Short-Term Grants provide up to 30
days of stipend support and use of Institute facilities to conduct
research in Washington, and are open to scholars who either possess a
doctoral degree or are doctoral candidates who have nearly completed
The deadline for the Research Scholar and the Summer Research grants is

applicants who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents upon
