Détails de l'opportunité

The Civil Society Scholar Awards (CSSA) support international academic mobility to enable doctoral students and university faculty to access resources that enrich socially engaged research and critical scholarship in their home country or region.

The awards support activities such as fieldwork (data collection); research visits to libraries, archives, or universities; course/curriculum development; and international collaborations leading to a peer-reviewed publication.

Civil Society Scholars are selected on the basis of their outstanding contributions to research or other engagement with local communities, to furthering debates on challenging societal questions, and to strengthening critical scholarship and academic networks within their fields.

Applicants may not request grant assistance for the support of:

  • federal and/or state taxes;
  • computer hardware, software or other computer-related equipment;
  • automobile-related expenses;
  • tuition/academic fees if the activity is not for the first year of a doctoral program;
  • conference attendance which is not part of a larger research project;
  • applications from more than one individual.

Ineligible fields include: business administration, management training, computer science, finance/banking, marketing, engineering, hard sciences (physics, biology, chemistry, etc.), mathematics, medical sciences, or teaching English as a foreign language/language instruction.

Applicants with permanent resident status, dual citizenship, and/or asylum seekers in Australia, Canada, European Union, New Zealand, Nordic Countries, or the United States are not eligible to apply.

Students or faculty currently enrolled in master’s degree programs are not eligible to apply.
