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.

For 2018 we are pleased to offer two separate fellowships opportunities, and are encouraging applications that engage with a number of Invitational Priorities, including those that explore linkages beyond the InterAsian expanse and that emphasize connections between Asia and Africa (see Answers to FAQs for detailed descriptions of this year’s Invitational Priorities). 

  • 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 65 individual fellowships totaling nearly $2.5 million have been awarded (please see detailed descriptions of our fellows’ research projects here). These fellowships support junior scholars (one to five years out of the PhD) as they complete first books or undertake second projects. In addition to funding research, the fellowships create networks and shared resources that will support fellows well beyond the award period, providing promising scholars important support at critical junctures in their careers. In 2018, approximately fifteen awards of up to $45,000 each will be awarded to scholars located in any world region. Award funds are to be disbursed flexibly over the period May 1, 2018–August 31, 2019. 
  • The second, the SSRC Global Summer Semester Residency at the University of Göttingen, is a short-term fellowship opportunity offered in collaboration with the Global and Transregional Studies Platform at the University of Göttingen in Germany. Support will be provided to a small cohort of researchers who are working on projects that reflect the existing research expertise at the University, and that build upon the Global and Transregional Studies Platform's research themes: Movements of KnowledgeTransregional Populisms, andReligious Networks. Recipients will be based in residence at the University of Göttingen for the 2018 summer semester (approximate dates April 15, 2018–July 15, 2018).
  • For additional details on both fellowships competitions, including eligibility criteria and information on how to apply online using the SSRC’s application portal, please see our Answers to Frequently Asked Questions.  


‣ The SSRC Transregional Research Junior Scholar Fellowship thus provides promising scholars important support at critical junctures in their careers.
