Palestinian American Research Center (PARC)
PARC provides a number of annual opportunities for doctoral and post-doctoral candidates to engage more deeply in research on Palestinian issues. While our grant from NEH/FPIRI funds research specifically in the Humanities, our other research fellowships have no restrictions on the field of study. Both are open to US citizens, and the NEH fellowships are also open to scholars who have lived in the US for the last 3 years. Introduced five years ago, our 12-day travel seminar for US professors who have not had an opportunity to visit Palestine has been an unqualified success.
As our 2015 grant competitions get underway, with deadlines in December 2014 and January 2015, I am reaching out to encourage you to share these opportunities with your PhD candidates and faculty members as well as other departments at your university and beyond. Below are brief descriptions of this year’s competitions; the three corresponding announcements are attached if you would like to post or circulate them. We hope you will help us ensure a rich and robust applicant pool for these wonderful opportunities.
