The American Institute for Yemeni Studies annually holds two competitions for fellowship programs supporting research on Yemen, one for U.S. citizens, presently limited to venues other than Yemen, and one for citizens of the Republic of Yemen. Both are funded by grants from the State Department's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. The next deadline for US fellowships is January 15th, 2017 and the next deadline for Yemeni fellowships is January 31st, 2017.
There presently is a ban on using State Department-funded fellowships for travel to Yemen. For US scholars, AIYS can only accept applications for research on Yemen in venues other than Yemen and the United States. For the same reason, AIYS cannot accept applications for intensive Arabic study.
