ARCE administers research fellowships for students enrolled in doctoral programs at North American universities, and for American post-doctoral scholars and professionals affiliated with universities and research institutions worldwide.
ARCE Fellowships are awarded for a minimum of three months and a maximum of twelve months depending on the funding source. Fellowships provide sufficient funding to cover round-trip air transportation, a living allowance, mentoring and a home base in Egypt for doctoral candidates in the all-but-dissertation stage and senior scholars conducting more advanced research.
Post-doctoral scholars are invited to indicate their interest in serving as the ARCE Scholar-in-Residence on the fellowship application. The Scholar-in-Residence may serve for a period up to 12 months depending on the length of his/her fellowship. In addition to conducting his/her research, s/he agrees to advise junior scholars and organize a workshop, conference, or other scholarly activity in consultation with the Director. An additional modest per diem is available for the Scholar-in-Residence for these concurrent duties. Interested and qualified candidates are identified during the Fellowship Committee Meeting and recommendations made to the ARCE Director, who makes the final selection.
