American Councils for International Education

Overview

American Councils has administered grants in support of research in a range of disciplines and geographies for over 30 years. Through a strong presence overseas and a network of scholars and institutional partners, they connect grantees with the resources they need to achieve their research goals. Funded by the U.S. Department of State’s Program for Research and Training on Eastern Europe and the Independent States of the Former Soviet Union (Title VIII), American Councils offers two research grants: the Title VIII Research Scholar Program and the Title VIII Combined Research & Language Training Program (CRLT).

The Title VIII Research Scholar Program provides full support for U.S. graduate students, faculty and independent scholars seeking to conduct in-country, independent research for three to nine consecutive months throughout Russia, Eurasia, and Eastern Europe.

Title VIII Combined Research & Language Training Program provides full support for U.S. graduate students, faculty, and independent scholars seeking to conduct in-country, independent research in Russia, Eurasia, and Eastern Europe, while increasing proficiency in regional languages.
