This program is open to Cambodian and U.S. doctoral candidates and scholars who have already earned their Ph.D. in the social sciences and humanities. Scholars can pursue research in other countries in mainland Southeast Asia (Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Burma, Southern China) provided that part of their research is undertaken in Cambodia.

Ph.D. Dissertation Research Fellowships

These Fellowships are open to doctoral candidates who wish to pursue their dissertation research in Cambodia and Southeast Asia. Awards are available for periods of up to eleven months.

Senior Research Fellowships

Senior Fellowships are open to scholars in all disciplines in the social sciences and the humanities to pursue further research in Cambodia and Southeast Asia.

Short-term awards are available for up to four months.
Long-term awards are available for six to nine months.

Fellowships for four months or less have some travel restrictions.

Criteria for Evaluation

The Selection Committee will assess each application on the basis of the project description, the candidate’s academic and/ or professional record and the quality of references. Members of the Selection Committee represent different academic disciplines, so the applicant must explain the nature and significance of the project in terms understandable to a non-specialist audience. Fellowships granted by the Center for Khmer Studies receive funding from the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the United States State Department and the Council of American Overseas Research Centers. Candidates MUST be Cambodian or U.S. citizens.
