Trans-regional Research Junior Scholar International Fellowship

The InterAsia Program Transregional Research Junior Scholar Fellowship is aimed at supporting trans-regional research under the rubric InterAsian Contexts and Connections. Its purpose is to strengthen the understanding of issues and geographies that do not fit neatly into existing divisions of academia or the world and to develop new approaches, practices, and opportunities in international, regional, and area studies.

Funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, these fellowships help junior scholars (one to five years out of the PhD) complete first books or undertake second projects. In addition to funding research, the fellowships create networks and shared resources that will support fellows well beyond the award period. The Trans-regional Research Junior Scholar Fellowship provides promising scholars important support at critical junctures in their careers.

The fellowship should be taken in USA.


Fellowship recipients must hold PhD degree by June 1, 2014 and must be no more than five years out of a PhD program (e.g. all applicants must have received the PhD no earlier than spring 2010).


Fellowships will be awarded for up to USD 45,000. Fellowship can be used for salary support; travel and living expenses in the field, data collection, language acquisition, research assistance (up to 10% of total amount requested), books and materials, and limited equipment and software. Funds may be used for attending one conference at up to USD 1,000 per domestic conference and USD 1,500 per international conference only if the fellow is presenting on fellowship-related research and his/her attendance directly furthers the purposes of the fellowship-supported research project.


The application deadline is 25 August 2015.
