US Scholars Fellowship Now Open for Applications

The American Institute for Yemeni Studies is now accepting applications for the US Scholars Fellowship! This fellowship enables US scholars to travel and complete research on Yemen in any academic discipline, so it isn't limited to the humanities. The purpose of this fellowship is to encourage and support scholarly research that fosters greater understanding of Yemen, its history, culture, and impact. Travel must be carried out outside of the U.S. and Yemen.

Previous fellows have carried out research in Lebanon at the Jafet Library Special Collections at the American University of Beirut, in the Netherlands at the Leiden Collection of Ancient South Arabian Stick Inscriptions at Leiden University, and other fellows have traveled to conduct interviews with Yemenis in diaspora as well.

The fellowship is open to United States citizens who are either current graduate students or post graduate scholars. Team submissions are also welcome, though all team members must meet the eligibility criteria. The third and final eligibility requirement is that fellows must complete their research in a country (or countries) outside of the United States and Yemen.

AIYS gives out 1-2 awards for up to $4,500 each year and we are excited to begin accepting applications!
