2001 RESEARCH SUPPORT PROGRAM Nature of Program. The German Marshall Fund of the United States offers grants for advanced research to improve the understanding of significant contemporary economic, political and social developments relating to Europe, European integration and relations between Europe and the United States. Projects should involve either comparative analysis of a specific issue in more than one country or the exploration of an issue in a single country in ways that can be expected to have relevance for other countries. The geographic scope of the program includes Western, Central and Eastern Europe, including Russia and Turkey as they relate to Europe, but not the Central Asian countries that were formerly part of the Soviet Union. Applicants. The German Marshall Fund?s program will provide assistance to graduate students, recent Ph.D. or LL.M. recipients, and more senior scholars. Only U.S. citizens and permanent residents are eligible. Special consideration will be given to applicants seeking support for dissertation fieldwork in one or more European countries and to projects involving parallel or collaborative research by both established and younger scholars, including projects designed on a transatlantic basis. The program will also consider the provision of small predissertation research grants to applicants committed to completion of a dissertation related to Europe who can demonstrate special need for such support. Applications for support for dissertation fieldwork or predissertation research should be accompanied by one or more letters of recommendation from dissertation adviser(s). Selection Criteria. The following selection criteria are important: scholarly qualifications, achievements; quality, importance and originality of the proposed research; disciplinary and/or policy relevance of the project and its expected results; demonstrable need for support that is unavailable from other sources; and the likelihood of completing the proposed research or fieldwork during the support period. Deadline and Review Process. Completed applications must be postmarked no later than November 15, 2000 for dissertation and advanced research applicants and January 15, 2001 for predissertation research applicants. Submissions will be reviewed by an interdisciplinary committee of established scholars. An independent selection committee of scholars will make recommendations to GMF. Awards will be announced by letter no later than March 15, 2001. Support Policy. ? Support for predissertation research will not exceed $3,000 and recipients will be expected to spend at least six weeks in Europe working on the design of their dissertations. ? Support for dissertation fieldwork in Europe will be available for one year in the amount of $20,000. ? Recipients of support for advanced research are expected to work full-time on the proposed project, without teaching or other substantial professional responsibilities, for a period not less than one academic term and not greater than one year. Awards of up to $40,000 will be made for postdoctoral and advanced research (the awards are intended to help meet, but cannot exceed, a recipient?s current income). All award recipients are responsible for arranging their own housing, insurance, benefits and travel (including visas if applicable). Application Forms.
