Opportunity: James H. Billington Fellowship

The Kennan Institute is pleased to announce the 2020 competition for the James H. Billington Fellowship.

James H. Billington Fellowship – Deadline: May 15, 2020

The Billington Fellowship was established in 2016 in tribute to the co-founder of the Kennan Institute, Director Emeritus of the Wilson Center, and Librarian Emeritus of Congress, James H. Billington. For this fellowship, we will consider proposed research in the fields of Russian history and culture, and preference will be given to scholars who have received their Ph.D. within the past 10 years. There is no citizenship restriction on this grant.

The Billington Fellowship offers a monthly stipend of $5,000, research facilities, a research intern, and computer access. Fellows are required to be in residence at the Kennan Institute, Wilson Center in Washington, D.C. for the duration of the grant, a nine-month term (one academic year).

Fellows will receive access to the Library of Congress, National Archives, and policy research centers in Washington, D.C., as well as the opportunity to meet with key experts and officials at the State Department, USAID, Department of Defense, and Congress. While conducting research, the Billington Fellow will be expected to actively participate in discussions with the policy and academic communities.
