BA/ AHRC/ ESRC Visiting Fellowships for South Asia and the Middle East 

Fellowship Deadline: December 13, 2007

The British Academy (BA) the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and 
the Economic and Social Research Council will shortly announce a second call 
for applications for their joint Visiting Fellowships for South Asia and the 
Middle East. The fellowships aim to attract early career researchers in any 
branch of the humanities or social sciences, who, in conjunction with a UK 
host academic, can apply to spend at least two months undertaking a clearly 
specified research project in the United Kingdom. Applicants must be of 
postdoctoral or equivalent status. They must also be ordinarily resident in 
one of these countries: Bahrain, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Burma, India, Iran, 
Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Maldives, Nepal, Oman, Pakistan, 
Palestinian Territories, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, Syria, Turkey, 
United Arab Emirates and Yemen.

The maximum grant under the scheme is £15,000 at Full Economic Cost (FEC). 
The BA/AHRC/ESRC will contribute 80% of the FEC of the visit, up to a 
maximum of £12,000. Further information will be available in late September.

Applications should be submitted to the ESRC via the Research Council Joint 
Electronic Submission System (Je-S). More information about the call will 
shortly be available at http://www.esrc.ac.uk/vfsouthasiamiddleeast
