Description

‣ The Social Science Research Council Transregional Research Program aims at promoting excellence in transregional research and interrogating boundaries that have long divided world geographies and academic communities.

In 2016, the SSRC will offer two separate fellowship competitions as part of its Transregional Research Program:

  • The first, the Transregional Research Junior Scholar Fellowship: InterAsian Contexts and Connections, builds upon the SSRC’s current transregional grants program through which more than 50 individual fellowships totaling nearly $2 million have been awarded. These longer-term fellowships are designed to support junior scholars as they work on first or second projects and to be disbursed flexibly over a sixteen-month period. Fellows can be affiliated anywhere, need not be full-time employed, and can use the funds for research or writing. Fellowship amounts will vary based on the proposed research activities, timeline, and location, and awards will be granted of $20,000–$45,000.
  • The second, the SSRC Global Summer Semester Residency at the University of Göttingen, is a new short-term fellowship opportunity offered in collaboration with the CETREN Transregional Research Network at the University of Göttingen in Germany, an InterAsia partner institution, or hub. These three-month residencies will take place during the 2017 summer semester at the University of Göttingen, which runs from April 15, 2017–July 15, 2017. These residencies are designed to support a small cohort of scholars who are working on projects that reflect the existing research expertise at the University of Göttingen and build upon CETREN’s research themes: Movements of KnowledgeMedia, Migration, and the Moving Political, and Religious Networks. Recipients will receive 2,500 €/month for three months and one round-trip economy class plane ticket to Göttingen. 

    Note: this award is subject to final grant approval from the German Ministry of Education and Research.
