Social Science Fellowship Program to Support Collaborative
         Projects in Britain and the Americas
 Deadline: April 16, 2007
 The Economic and Social Research Council ( http://www.esrc.ac.uk/ )
 and the Social Science Research Council ( http://www.ssrc.org/ )
 have announced a fellowship for scholars from the Americas (North,
 Central, South, and the Caribbean) 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 Americas, between June 2007 and
 September 2008.
 ESRC and SSRC have a common mission of promoting, funding, and
 disseminating important and socially useful knowledge in the
 social sciences. The fellowship program is designed to encourage
 communication and cooperation between social scientists in Great
 Britain and the Americas, and to explore and develop possibilities
 for future exchanges to be organized by the two organizations.
 Applicants from the Americas should have received a Ph.D in one of
 the social sciences (including history) by the time the proposed
 visiting fellowship is scheduled to start. They also should have
 been based in the country from which they are applying for at
 least two years. The fellowship program is open to scholars from
 universities, colleges, independent research organizations, and
 public agencies in the Americas and to scholars at ESRC-supported
 centers, programs, groups, networks, as well as holders of Large
 Grants awards or Professorial Fellowships in Britain.
 Approximately eighteen research fellowships of up to $9,500 will
 be awarded. Funds may be used for transportation, accommodation,
 living expenses, and, exceptionally, to cover salary costs for the
 duration of the visit.
 Complete program information, including a list of eligible
 countries, is available at the SSCR Web site.
