The Short-Term Research Fellowship at Stanford University for Estonian Scholars, application deadline October 18,2021.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Estonia and the Stanford University Libraries invite applications for The Short-Term Research Fellowship at Stanford University for Estonian Scholars.

The 6-8-week fellowship enables Estonian researchers, especially early- to mid-career scholars, to make use of Stanford’s strong collections, academic knowledge, and networks related to the study of the history, society, and politics of Estonia and the Baltic region.

The fellowship is hosted by SUL’s Baltic Studies Program, which is home to one of the strongest Baltic collections in the U.S. and a vibrant program of events and projects led by SUL’s Associate Curator for Estonian and Baltic Studies. In partnership with SUL, The Europe Center will organize at least one lecture or seminar by the fellow during the fellowship and will include them in the center’s activities, events, and networks. The fellow will also have access to Hoover Institution Library and Archives, which include one of the strongest Baltic archival collections outside the Baltic region, and enjoy the opportunity to engage in the scholarly and research activities of Stanford University.


* The fellowship is open to all scholars with a doctoral degree, proposals by early- to midcareer scholars (scholars who have earned their doctoral degree 5–15 years ago) are especially encouraged.

* We welcome proposals related to the study of history, society, and politics (political/international studies, diplomacy, etc.) of Estonia and the Baltic region.

* Applicants must be citizens and current residents of Estonia and must return to Estonia after the completion of the fellowship.
