Short-term Senior Fellowships in Iranian Studies

American Institute of Iranian Studies

AIIrS offers short-term senior fellowships for research travel to Iran of up to four weeks' duration but will also consider short-term visits to other countries with resources essential to the research. These fellowships enable established scholars with research interests in the field of Iranian Studies to acquaint themselves with the range of academic activities and resources in Iran or relevant other countries. It is the responsibility of the applicant to receive permission to conduct the intended research from the pertinent Iranian or other-country authorities prior to making the application. Applicants must be U.S. citizens traveling on a U.S. passport, and preference will be given to tenured faculty members and museum staff with some knowledge of Persian and a record of research in the humanities or the social sciences relating to Iran. Applications, which will be considered on a rolling basis, should be made in the form of a letter explaining how the opportunity afforded by the fellowship would benefit the applicant's work. Also included must be the names and addresses of the relevant contacts in Iran who have provided permission to research; the names and e-mail addresses of two referees and a curriculum vitae.
