ACOR-NEH 2024 Fellowship—Deadline to Apply: October 1, 2023

The American Center of Research, located in Amman, Jordan, is pleased to announce that we have an ACOR-NEH Fellowship opportunity available for use in 2024. Funding for this fellowship is provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship Programs at Independent Research Institutes (FPIRI).  

We have opened application for a fellowship of four to eight months, commencing not earlier than January 1, 2024. Applications will be accepted until October 1, 2023. All applicants will be notified of the results by November 2023.

For full details, please see: 

Applications are submitted through the CAORC & ORC Grant Application Portal:


An award for six months is expected to be $30,000, of which $18,000 is for stipend and travel and the remainder provides room and board at ACOR; funds are adjusted proportionately for terms other than six months. Fellowship tenure must be continuous and last at least four months. Short departures from Jordan (e.g., to attend conferences or conduct research in neighboring areas) are possible but must be approved in advance. 

NEH-funded fellows must be United States citizens or foreign nationals who have lived in the United States for three years immediately preceding the application deadline for the fellowship. This fellowship is for individuals who have completed their formal professional training; consequently, degree candidates and individuals seeking support for work in pursuit of a degree are not eligible to hold this fellowship. Advanced-degree candidates must have completed all requirements except for the actual conferral of the degree by the application deadline for the fellowship. 

Every NEH fellowship cycle, an external peer review committee is reconstituted in full. So, all applications are seen anew. 

We encourage everyone eligible to apply. Robust interest in this opportunity helps ensure that it will remains available to the field in future years.
