For nearly six decades, ARCE-funded fellowships have supported intellectuals interested in conducting academic research in Egypt on various topics. Heritage enthusiats are invited to carry out research in diverse fields such as anthropology, archaeology, architecture, fine art, art history, Coptic studies, economics, Egyptology, history, humanistic social sciences, Islamic studies, literature, political science, religious studies and even music. ARCE provides travel grants and fellowships to predissertation, post-doctoral, independent scholars and faculty members. Through the fellowship opportunities, researchers will get the chance to spend a significant amount of time in Egypt and gain hands-on experience while carrying out their fellowship. Since 1957, publications produced by fellows contribute substantially to research on Egypt by Americans. Decades of close collaboration with the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities (MoTA) and Ministry of Higher Education (MoHE) enable ARCE to provide fellows with administrative support and advice that eases access to Egyptian museums, monuments, archaeological sites, research libraries, archives and Egyptian institutions of higher education.
Funded by the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural affairs through a grant to the Council of American Overseas Research Center (CAORC), ARCE offers long term 3 to 12 month fellowships. These opportunities include the ARCE Research Fellowship, Pre-Dissertation Travel Grant, and the ARCE Short-Term Research Grant for Postdoctoral, Adjunct Faculty and Independent Scholars. Americans studying, teaching, or working worldwide are eligible for these grants. Now is your chance to apply for any of the diverse opportunities such as the Digital Humanities Fellowship, the Theodore N. Romanoff Prize, the ARCE-CAORC Research Fellowship, and so much more.
ARCE fellows have landed prestigious jobs such as directors and faculty of Middle Eastern studies and history departments at leading universities, in the United States and abroad, and curators of Egyptian and Near Eastern art at major museums and research institutions.
The deadline for applicaitons is January, 15th 2023.
