Junior Fellowships

The American Institute of Bangladesh Studies awards grants for a minimum of two months, but no longer than twelve months (pending available funding) for junior research fellowships involving Bangladesh, funded by the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs through the Council of American Overseas Research Centers. Due to grant funding restrictions, fellowships are currently only available for US citizens. Due to ever-changing security concerns, proposed research must be conducted in a country other than the US or Bangladesh.

All applicants must be:

  1. Enrolled/employed at a US academic institution, and
  2. US Citizens (Sorry, US Permanent Residents are not eligible)

Each Junior Fellowship applicant must:

  • be an individual member of AIBS (click here for membership information), and
  • have passed the PhD exams and entered PhD candidacy before assuming the award; and
  • in the data collection and/or writing stage of the dissertation

Junior Fellowships will be equivalent to $1150 per month. In addition, the grant will provide traveler's insurance and economy round-trip air transportation. Airfare must be Fly America Act compliant, and AIBS will assist with booking travel.

Please note that all applications require a $25 processing fee. Please send a check payable to "American Institute of Bangladesh Studies" to:

AIBS
B488 Medical Sciences Center
1300 University Avenue
Madison, WI 53706
