Supplemental Title VIII Fellowship Competition

Supplemental Title VIII fellowship applications have closed.

The Center for Russia, East Europe, and Central Asia (CREECA) has opened a second Title VIII competition for students who will be studying a Central Eurasian language at CESSI in 2022. Applications are due by 11:59 p.m. on Monday, April 11, 2022.

The Title VIII Program, administered by the U.S. Department of State, provides funding for research and language training to American scholars and students for the study of Eastern Europe and Eurasia (Independent States of the Former Soviet Union). Title VIII maintains U.S. expertise in the regions and brings open-source, policy-relevant research to the service of the U.S. Government. Fellows are encouraged to pursue speaking engagements with INR’s Office of Analytic Outreach and seek employment with a U.S. government agency.

Title VIII fellowships cover full tuition at CESSI and provide a stipend of $2,500 to cover living expenses for the summer.

Eligibility: open to U.S. citizens who are graduate students (or will be beginning a graduate program in the fall), post-baccalaureate scholars, and working professionals.
