Cornell University, the Department of Near Eastern Studies, welcomes applications for doctoral/postdoctoral diversity fellowships from scholars who show promise of distinguished research careers in any subfield of Near Eastern/Middle Eastern Studies. Eligible applicants might be from underrepresented groups, have faced economic hardship, be first-generation college graduates, or work on topics related to these areas. Both three-year combination doctoral-postdoctoral fellowships and two-year postdoctoral fellowships are available. A fellowship will be awarded only if the department believes the applicant would make a very strong candidate for a tenure-track position that the department expects to have open in the next two-to-three years. 2012-13 award levels—doctoral: $31,000; postdoctoral: $56,000.
