Deadline for Ukrainian applicants: October 15, 2012.
The Fellowship is a three-month or six-month research grant available to prominent scholars and policy makers from the Russian Federation who have successfully bridged the worlds of ideas and public affairs to advance human rights, the rule of law, conflict resolution, the free press, and civil society. Application deadline: TBA.
The Kennan Institute offers paid research internships for undergraduate, graduate, and prospective graduate students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Each intern works with a scholar in residence at the Institute over a period of three to nine months. Applicants should have a good command of the Russian language and ability to conduct independent research. This internship offers a flexible schedule of 15 hours per week and a metro subsidy for conducting off-site research.
