2010 Fellows

With funding from the Department of State Title VIII Program, the SSRC Eurasia Program is pleased to offer multiple fellowship opportunities for Eurasian studies scholars. In 2010-2011 we provided dissertation write-up support to a group of eleven young scholars. These fellows cover the disciplines of anthropology, political science, history, and law.

The SSRC has provided dissertation write-up support to over 150 scholars in seven social science disciplines since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. With support from the US Department of State’s Title VIII program, the Eurasia Program has additionally offered teaching development fellowships, pre-dissertation awards, and post-doctoral fellowships.
