Short-Term Travel Grants (STG)


The Short-Term Travel Grants Program (STG) supports postdoctoral scholars and professionals to conduct independent or collaborative research in Eastern Europe and Eurasia. With its flexible format and quick turnaround time, this program meets an important need for the scholarly and policy communities, and makes a direct impact on the formation of U.S. foreign policy through the support of policy-relevant, "open-source" research on current regional issues of importance to the United States. STG is designed to allow scholars to conduct short, targeted projects without significantly affecting their teaching and work schedules. STG is sponsored by the Title VIII program through the Bureau of Intelligence and Research (INR), U.S. Department of State.

Sponsor: IREX (International Research & Exchanges Board)
