The American Institute of Bangladesh Studies awards grants for a minimum of two months, but no longer than twelve months (pending available funding) for Junior Research Fellowships involving Bangladesh, funded by the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs through the Council of American Overseas Research Centers. Due to grant funding restrictions, fellowships are currently only available for US citizens. Due to ever-changing security concerns, Junior Scholars are not authorized travel to Bangladesh at this time. Your proposal must include travel to a country or countries other than the US or Bangladesh during this call. Please contact us if you are interested in conducting your fellowship in a country with travel advisories between levels 2-4. Fellows must propose research in a country other than the one they are currently residing or working in (for example, if a US scholar resides in the United Kingdom, he/she cannot submit a proposal to conduct research in London).
All Applicants Must Be:
1. Enrolled/employed/affiliated with a US or non-US academic institution
2. US Citizens (unfortunately, US Permanent Residents are not eligible)
Each Junior Fellowship Applicant Must:
- be an individual member of AIBS (click here for membership information), and
- have passed the PhD exams and entered PhD candidacy before assuming the award; and
- in the data collection and/or writing stage of the dissertation
Junior Fellowships will be equivalent to $1150 per month. In addition, the grant will provide traveler’s insurance and economy round-trip air transportation. Airfare must be Fly America Act compliant, and AIBS will assist with booking travel.
