The CAORC - National Endowment for the Humanities Research Fellowship provides the opportunity for scholars to spend significant time in one country with an Overseas Research Center as a research base. The fellowship supports advanced research in the humanities for US scholars who hold a PhD (and also foreign national scholars who have been resident in the US for at least three years). Approximately three awards will be granted for four to six consecutive months.

Fields of study include, but are not limited to, history, philosophy, religious studies, linguistics, languages, literature, literary criticism, and visual and performing arts. In addition, research that embraces a humanistic approach and methods will be considered. Fellows may travel and carry out research between the period of May 2023 to end of December 2024.
