First, select your academic status under your citizenship / US academic affiliation:
A) US Citizen and enrolled/employed full-time with a US academic institution
B) US Citizen not enrolled/employed full-time with a US academic institution - sorry, there are no AIPS Fellowships available under these conditions.
C) Non-US Citizen and enrolled/employed full-time with a US academic institution (please note AIPS has limited funds for these fellowships)
D) Non-US Citizen not enrolled/employed full-time with a US academic institution – sorry, there are no AIPS Fellowships available under these conditions.
The amount of the stipends will be comparable to Fulbright Awards and will be determined by the Fellowships Committee based on availability of funds and current rates as defined by the U S State Department. Total fellowship support can range from $3,000 to $25,000.
Funding for long-term fellowships for US citizens is provided by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State through a grant from the Council of American Overseas Research Centers. When available funding for long-term fellowships for non-US citizens is provided by unrestricted funds.
Short-term fellowships for US citizens to Pakistan are funded by the Public Affairs Section, American Embassy, Islamabad, Pakistan. Funding for non-US citizens is provided by limited, special AIPS funds.
