The Center for Khmer Studies (CKS) provides research fellowships to US scholars in all disciplines in the social sciences and the humanities who seek to pursue further research focusing on Cambodia alone or on Cambodia within a regional context. Scholars can conduct research in other countries in mainland Southeast Asia (including Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Myanmar, and southern China) provided that some portion of their research is undertaken in Cambodia.

CKS Research Fellows are given direct funding for their research and access to in-country resources and are provided with logistical support and contacts while in-country. Scholars who hold a PhD are eligible for Senior Research Fellowships, while current doctoral students are eligible for Dissertation Research Fellowships. These fellowships are available for a maximum of 11 months of research.

The CKS US Research Fellowship Program is funded by the Council of American Overseas Research Centers. Applicants must be US citizens. (Applicants from specific countries may also be eligible to apply.)
