The American Center of Research offers a number of “Named Fellowships.” Typically ranging from $800-$4000 dollars, these fellowships have been created by or in memory of special people from our community. Various kinds of work, nationalities, and experience are supported by each, in connection with the primary donor’s intent. It is possible a scholar may be awarded more than one of the named fellowships together.
“Named” Fellowships carry the name of the person or persons who founded the fellowship, or in whose honor/memory they were created, and endowment to operate in perpetuity. You will find a short background of the namesakes of the named fellowships in the information contained in this menu (left).
ACOR’s competitive fellowship application process results in annual cohorts of fellows who reflect a broad spectrum of disciplines as well as institutional, regional, and cultural backgrounds. The diversity of research topics is extensive, creating a dynamic environment that improves the educational exchange experience for all.
ACOR’s fellowship program has a long history of nurturing students and researchers as their scholarship matures through undergraduate and graduate study and then ultimately into professional academia. Some who first come to Jordan through an ACOR Named Fellowship, for example, later receive ACOR graduate and postgraduate fellowships that allow them to continue their careers in Jordan.
