The Palestinian American Research Center (PARC) announces its 18th annual competition for doctoral and post-doctoral research fellowships in Palestinian Studies.

Interested candidates should send a pre-proposal via email to by 5 October 2016.

To be eligible for research fellowships, the following criteria must be met:

  • The research project must make a contribution to Palestinian Studies. Research can be in humanities and social sciences, including inter-disciplinary studies in public health, environment, and aspects of science directly related to Palestinian Studies.
  • One fellowship will be awarded to researchers studying the linkage between environmental issues and human rights with gender as a cross-cutting issue. Potential fields could involve resource management and sustainability, legislations and policies, and violations to the environment.
  • Research must take place in Palestine, Jordan, or Lebanon.
  • The research must take into account that the fellowship is for one year only.
  • Applicants must be post-doctoral scholars, established researchers, or full-time doctoral students enrolled in a recognized degree program.
  • Doctoral students must have fulfilled all preliminary requirements for the doctorate degree except the dissertation by the time research commences. The fellowship does not cover tuition fees.
  • Senior researchers without doctorates but with a record of academic publication are also eligible. Applicants with a master's degree may only apply for a joint project with a post-doctoral scholar.
  • Individual and joint research is eligible i.e. research can be done by a group of researchers.
  • Women applicants and scholars from the Gaza Strip are especially encouraged to apply.
  • PARC fellows who received grants in the last three years are not eligible to apply.
