Short Term Travel Grants (STG)
International Research and Exchanges Board (IREX)
The Short-Term Travel Grants Program (STG) is a flexible fellowship offering support to postdoctoral scholars and professionals
to conduct research in Eastern Europe and Eurasia on issues relevant to the U.S. Government. Because STG
supports research for a maximum of eight weeks, fellows have the ability to conduct shorter research trips without significantly
affecting their teaching and work schedules.
Scholars interested in STG can apply to conduct research in up to two countries for up to eight weeks. As part of the STG
fellowship, participants are provided with visa assistance, international roundtrip transportation, a monthly allowance
for housing and living expenses, and emergency evacuation insurance. IARO fellows also have access to resources available
in any of IREX’s 25 field offices.
For a list of recent research projects that have been funded by STG program, please visit the Program Results page.
STG applicants must have a graduate degree (PhD, MA, MD, MBA, MFA, MPA, MPH, MLIS, MS, JD) at the time of application
and be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.
