Description: The study/research grant category includes projects in both academic and arts fields. The study/research grants are available in approximately 140 countries. Applicants for these grants design their own projects and will typically work with advisers at foreign universities or other institutes of higher education. Program requirements vary by country, so the applicant’s first step is to familiarize themselves with the program summary for the host country. Creative and performing arts applicants are required to submit supplementary materials based on their disciplines.
Eligibility: Applicants must be U.S. citizens at the time of application. Permanent residents are not eligible. Applicants must have a conferred bachelor's degree or the equivalent before the start of the grant. In the creative and performing arts, four years of professional training and/or experience meets the basic eligibility requirement. Applicants must be in good health. Grantees will be required to submit a satisfactory Medical Certificate from a physician. Applicants must have sufficient proficiency in the written and spoken language of the host country sufficient to communicate with the people and to carry out the proposed study/research. This is especially important for projects in the social sciences and the humanities.
