The American Institute of Bangladesh Studies offers short-term grants to graduate students pursuing studies of Bangladesh funded by the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs through the Council of American Overseas Research Centers. All scholars must plan to carry out research in Bangladesh, however research in a country other than Bangladesh or the US at this time will be considered. You may include a secondary plan for research in a third country on the chance the travel advisory changes by the time you conduct your research (include the secondary plan in the narrative of your proposal).

The grant provides a stay of between 2 and 4 months in Bangladesh or a non-U.S. country (fund cannot be used domestically in the U.S.) that may be used for language study, resource development, or network building to aid in the completion of a competitive dissertation proposal in some way related to Bangladesh. Your application must demonstrate how the period spent in Bangladesh or a non-U.S. country will enhance your dissertation research and benefit your long-term career goals.
