Short-Term Travel Grants
IREX: Make a Better World
Deadline: February 2, 2011
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.
ELIGIBILITY: 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. Eligible countries
of research: Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia,
Georgia, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Poland, Romania,
Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan.
Funding: 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.
