Center for Khmer Studies
The Center for Khmer Studies (CKS) provides in-country research fellowships for U.S., Cambodian, and French scholars (or EU citizens holding a French degree) and doctoral students on a yearly basis.
CKS Senior Research Fellows are given direct funding for their research, access to CKS resources, and are provided with logistical support and contacts while in Cambodia.
Senior fellowships are open to scholars in all disciplines in the social sciences and the humanities to pursue further research focusing on Cambodia only or Cambodia within a regional context.
Ph.D. fellowships are available for a maximum of 11 months for doctoral dissertation research. Senior long-term (6 to 9 months) and short-term (4 to 6 months or less) fellowships are available for scholars who already hold a Ph.D.
This year, we would like to encourage research proposals related to the following themes. These are not restrictive, and please do feel free to submit proposals addressing any other themes too.
Urban sustainability (urban mobility, smart cities, gentrification, cultural preservation, demography and migration, etc.)
Environmental protection/environmental sustainability/circular economy/inequalities
Mine action and social impact in the ASEAN region
Role of youth and arts in Cambodia’s social development
