Subject: ACMS Mongolia Cultural Heritage Fellowship Announced

Dear ACMS members and friends,

We are pleased to announce a new fellowship program offering for 2015-2016: the Mongolia Cultural Heritage Research Fellowship Program. This program is made possible by a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation ( )

The 2015-16 Mongolia Cultural Heritage Research Fellowship Program will support up to four fellows (two long-term fellowships of up to 9 months, and two short-term fellowships of 1-3 months) to carry out advanced graduate or post-doctoral research on topics related to the preservation of Mongolia's Cultural Heritage.

Fellowship awards will include travel expenses to and from Mongolia, an allowance for accommodation and food, and a stipend to cover research expenses. Awards will be adjusted based on the length of time spent conducting research in the region with a maximum award of $18,000 for long-term fellows, and a maximum award of $5,000 for short-term fellows. Fellows will also have the opportunity to take intensive Mongolian language courses, network with other Mongolian and international scholars, and participate in ACMS events and activities. The fellows will be expected to contribute to the development of databases and collections of Mongolian cultural heritage information together with the ACMS, the Smithsonian Institution and Mongolian partner organizations. The goal will be to make the research knowledge gathered by the fellows easily accessible and searchable by interested parties in Mongolia and abroad.

All applicants should be advanced in graduate programs or graduated from a university in the US or Canada. The deadline for applications is April 30, 2015.

Please help spread the word, and visit for more details.
