Fellowships for Postdoctoral Scholars

Eligibility:

  • PhD required. Postdoctoral Fellows may not pursue another degree while in this appointment, nor may they hold any other fellowships, tenure-track or visiting positions concurrently. Applicants must have successfully defended their dissertation before the start of their potential tenure as Manoogian Fellows.
  • Research and proposed course should be related to Armenian Studies (history, literature, visual arts, and politics). We reserve the possibility to ask the fellow to teach a core course already listed in our curriculum.

Fellowships for Visiting Scholars

Visiting Scholars, who are invited for one semester (Fall or Winter), will be asked to teach one class, participate in ASP sponsored events, and present one public lecture. Fellowships may also be offered for mini-courses to be taught over three or four weeks. Preference will be given to candidates outside the disciplines of history, language, and literature which are already taught by our ASP faculty. Previously awarded visiting scholars should wait seven years before applying for this program again.
