Short-Term Fellowship Program

Note on Coronavirus: Please be aware that we are still accepting applications for the Jordan Center Short-Term Visiting Fellowship Program. Current NYU policy prohibits all non-essential, in-person visits from both internationally-based and US-based individuals. We hope that this will not be the case in a few months once the situation has changed globally. Of course, our programs are all conditional upon NYU’s campus reopening in the Fall and programs such as ours being allowed to host international visitors. Please feel free to reach out to with any questions or concerns. 

Purpose: The NYU Jordan Center for the Advanced Study of Russia Short-Term Fellowship Program is designed to facilitate research in local collections, expose visitors to the intellectual life of the field of Russian studies at NYU and in the greater New York community, and acquaint NYU faculty and graduate students with the most recent world-wide trends in the study of Russia. Fellows will be awarded a stipend for a stay of up to one month at the Jordan Center.

Deadline: May 1, 2020

Award: Up to $5,000 (may be used for travel, housing, and/or daily expenses)

Eligibility: The fellowship program is geared toward scholars who have earned their doctoral degrees or the equivalent. Awardees will be expected to participate in the activities of the Jordan Center and have the opportunity to present their work to colleagues and graduate students. Awardees will be given an NYU affiliation, shared office space, and access to NYU libraries. The Jordan Center does not secure housing.
