Center for Khmer Studies
The CKS Scholar-in-Residence program offers one long-term fellowship annually to support and encourage top-quality research and writing on the history, politics, economics, and other topics related to Cambodia, as well as to promote and facilitate interdisciplinary knowledge exchange among scholars and practitioners at the Center for Khmer Studies (CKS).
This long-term fellowship provides a $20,000 stipend to support one postdoctoral scholar/ researcher who works at the Center for a period of 6 months to a year. Funding for this program comes from the Council of American Overseas Research Centers and only U.S. citizens may apply. Selected fellows can choose to begin their term from the January following selection. Fellows are provided with individual office space and equipment, in addition to full access to CKS research facilities including its extensive research library. In addition to pursuing their own research projects, fellows also engage in an ongoing interdisciplinary exchange of ideas, sharing their research with others in a weekly work-in-progress seminar. While in residence, fellows are exposed to the vibrant intellectual life of the Center of Khmer Studies through its public events, workshops, panels, screenings, etc.
These long-term fellowships are awarded for continuous periods of residence at CKS. Fellows are expected to devote their time to research and writing as well as to develop academic programming with other CKS scholars and staff. While scholars should not be employed in Cambodia during the residence, they are encouraged to supplement their stipend with funding from their home institutions or other non-residential fellowships or grants.
