ACMS Library Fellowships

American Center for Mongolian Studies

American Center for Mongolian Studies is pleased to continue the ACMS Library Fellowship. This fellowship supports advanced US graduate students, faculty members, or professionals in library and information sciences from colleges and universities to conduct short-term library development projects and/or research in Mongolia for a period of up to 12 weeks between May and October. The fellowship is supported with funding from the US State Department Education and Cultural Affairs Bureau through a grant by the Council of American Oversees Research Centers. The ACMS Library Fellowship program is intended to help support the development of the ACMS research library and build stronger connections among local library partners through specific defined projects designed to enhance collection content, resource accessibility, and training. Fellows are hosted by the ACMS and should propose projects that have measurable positive outcomes for the scholarly community served by the ACMS. Project proposals with similar outcomes and impacts on local partner libraries are also especially encouraged. Fellows spend a minimum of 4 weeks and a maximum of 12 weeks onsite in Mongolia at the ACMS library. Projects must begin after May 1 and end no later than September 30. Prior experience working in Mongolia is not a requirement. One to two Fellowships of up to $4,000 will be awarded to fund travel and living expenses.
