Sponsored by the Council of American Overseas Research Centers

Founded in 1981, the Council of American Overseas Research Centers (CAORC) is a private nonprofit federation of independent overseas research centers (ORCs) that promote advanced research, particularly in the humanities and social sciences. CAORC has two annual fellowship programs: the Multi-Country Research Fellowship, which has been running for 28 years, and the CAORC-NEH Senior Research Fellowship, which is now in its fifth year.

Scholars must carry out research in two or more countries outside the U.S., at least one of which hosts a participating overseas research center. Approximately nine awards of up to $11,500 each will be given.
