External Award: Wayne Vucinich Postdoctoral Fellowship at Stanford University

November 17, 2017

The Center for Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies (CREEES) at Stanford University invites applications for the Wayne Vucinich Fellowship. This is a 12-week residential fellowship to be offered from April-June 2018. The fellowship award funds international travel, health insurance, and a visa, in addition to a $12,000 stipend for living expenses.

The fellowship is open to scholars in any discipline whose research focuses on historical or contemporary topics in Russia, East Europe, the Caucasus, or Central Asia. Scholars who have received the PhD within the past five years are eligible to apply. Preference will be given to scholars who are residents of countries that fall under the direct purview of the Center.

During the fellowship period, the Vucinich Fellow is expected to pursue independent research in residence and to participate actively in the scholarly activities of the Center and to hold a lecture, seminar, or workshop on their research. The fellow will have access to Stanford University Libraries and the Hoover Institution Library and Archives and the use of a shared work space at the Center.

To apply, submit online application form, letter of application, Curriculum Vitae, writing sample, two letters of recommendation, and a short proposal for a public lecture and/or workshop by January 10, 2018.

For more information and to access the application, please visit the Fellowship webpage.
