The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Social Science Research Council (SSRC) are pleased to announce a fellowship for U.S. and Canadian scholars to visit and engage in collaborative activities with members of ESRC-supported projects in Britain, or for British scholars at ESRC-supported projects to visit collaborators in the U.S. or Canada, between July 2005 and September 2006. Approximately ten research fellowships of up to $7,500 (approx. £5000) will be awarded.

Applicants should have received a Ph.D in one of the social sciences (including history) by the time the proposed visiting fellowship would start. They should have been based in the U.S., Canada, or Britain for at least two years before the application deadline of June 1, 2005. The fellowship is open to scholars from U.S. and Canadian universities, colleges, independent research organisations, and public agencies and to scholars at ESRC-supported centres, programmes, groups and networks in Britain. 

Fundable activities include but are not strictly limited to: 
	*	engaging in collaborative or complementary research that will add a comparative focus to existing or new research projects; 
	*	engaging with a range of researchers, including younger scholars, to stimulate international and comparative dimensions to their thinking; 
	*	writing co-authored papers, articles, and books; 
	*	developing new proposals for joint research. 

The deadline for applications is June 1, 2005. More information about the fellowship, and application forms, can be found at www.ssrc.org.
