The Multi-Country Research Fellowship enables US scholars to carry out trans-regional and comparative research in countries across the network of Overseas Research Centers as well as other countries. 

The fellowship supports advanced research in the humanities, social sciences, and allied natural sciences for US doctoral candidates, who are all but dissertation, and scholars who have earned their PhD. Applicants are eligible to apply as individuals or as teams.

Twelve awards will be granted. Funding is provided by the State Department's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
Scholars must carry out research in two or more countries outside the US, at least one of which must host a participating Overseas Research Center (ORC). 

The award is for a minimum of 90 days and fellows may travel and carry out research between the period of May 2024 and November 2025. The 90-day travel minimum can be split into multiple trips and does not need to be consecutive.


  • Applicants must be U.S. citizens.
  • Ph.D. candidates must be ABD (all but dissertation) by May 2024.
  • Independent scholars are welcome to apply.
