Established in January 2001 by the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Carnegie Research Fellowship Program brings scholars from the former Soviet Union to the United States for short-term, non-degree research at American universities and research institutions. All fellows spend up to four months at their host universities conducting research on specific topics in their fields and write a 15 to 30-page academic paper for presentation upon the fellow's return home. Fellows are expected to present their work at conferences and receive peer evaluation of the results of their research.
The CRFP competition is open to university, faculty, researchers, advanced graduate students, and scholars in the social sciences and humanities from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine.
