AIPS Fellowships

The application is currently unavailable. The next application will be announced by October 31, 2016 and the deadline will be January 1, 2017 11:59PM CST. 

There are two competitions: Senior fellowship and Junior fellowship. Regardless of which competition you are entering, you will follow the same application instructions.

1) Post Doctoral Fellowship (Senior Fellowship)

Application requirements:

  • US Citizen and enrolled/employed full-time with a US academic institution, or
  •  Non-US Citizen and enrolled/employed full-time with a US academic institution (please note AIPS has limited funds for these fellowships)

2) Pre Doctoral Fellowship (Junior Fellowship)
**Note: Pre-doctoral means completed all requirements of PhD except dissertation**

Application requirements:

  • US Citizen and enrolled/employed full-time with a US academic institution, or
  •  Non-US Citizen and enrolled/employed full-time with a US academic institution (please note AIPS has limited funds for these fellowships)

** Note: If you are not enrolled/affiliated with a US institution and/or have not completed all requirements of PhD except dissertation - there are no AIPS fellowship opportunities at this time.

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 US State Department. Total fellowship support can range from $3,000 to $25,000.

Funding for 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 fellowships for non-US citizens is provided by AIPS unrestricted funds. All applications will undergo a competitive review. The review committee may prioritize applicants who have not received an AIPS fellowship in the past two years.

All applicants must pay an application fee ($30) and be current AIPS individual members ($25/year) at the time of the application review. Please note that these are two different payments.
