The Cyprus American Archaeological Research Institute (CAARI) in Nicosia, Cyprus, invites applications for two CAARI RESEARCH FELLOWSHIPS funded by the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs through a grant from the Council of American Overseas Research Centers. The fellowships provide $8000 each and are designed for scholars in the humanities, social sciences, and related natural sciences who already have their PhDs, whose research engages the culture, history, archaeology, or geography of Cyprus, and who would derive significant benefit from research time on the island. Particular consideration will be given to applicants whose projects will enable them to include Cyprus in their teaching. Applicants must be U.S. citizens.
Recipients will receive $2000 to be used for transport, $5500 toward living expenses and an additional $500 for research expenses on the island. Residence at CAARI is required. Recipients will present a public lecture or workshop on their research at CAARI during their residency, file a report on their project at its conclusion, and acknowledge CAARI in publications resulting from research done there. The fellowship could be held concurrently by the annual Senior Scholar in Residence (with separate application for each position).
CAARI is located in central Nicosia close to the Cyprus Museum, major libraries, and the main business and commercial district. The institute has hostel accommodations and excellent research facilities, in particular its library with extensive holdings covering all periods of Cypriot history and prehistory, as well as a good basic collection of works on Anatolia, the Aegean and the Near East.
