Competitions for Fellowships for Study and Research in Yemen

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. Fellowships for Yemeni scholars are also funded by the Al-Eryani Scholarship Fund. The next deadline for US fellowships is February 28, 2020 and the next deadline for Yemeni fellowships is February 28, 2020.

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.
