The American-Scandinavian Foundation, http://www.amscan.org/, is the
leading cultural and educational link between the United States and
Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden. An American nonprofit
organization headquartered in New York City, ASF works to build
international understanding with an extensive program of fellowships,
grants, intern/trainee sponsorship, publishing, and membership offerings.

The foundation's 2011-12 awards program will provide over $1 million
in total funding to outstanding American and Scandinavian students,
scholars, professionals, and artists.

Fellowships of up to $23,000 are intended to support an academic
year-long stay, and priority is given to students at the graduate
level who need to spend time at foreign academic or research
institutions. Grants starting from $5,000 are available for shorter
research visits, both at the graduate and post-doctoral levels.

Resource Center for Graduate Student External Support

The Resource Center for Graduate Student External Support works with Graduate School New Brunswick students to assist them with identifying and applying for external grants and fellowships.

We offer the most comprehensive resource for graduate students to search for external grant and fellowship opportunities, the Chaser Funder Database (http://chaser.rutgers.edu/database/). Our database currently catalogues over 3800 fellowships and grants that will support graduate student work from early pre-dissertation research and language training to dissertation research and writing and postdoctoral research. Some of the competitions require the applicant to be a US citizen but many of the opportunities are open to our international students.

There are many funding opportunities specifically designed to support dissertation research overseas. Examples of some of these major fellowships include:

  • Fulbright IIE (contact Assistant Dean David Pickens This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., 2-4950, to apply)

  • Fulbright Hays (contact Assistant Dean Teresa Delcorso This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., 2-2705, to apply)

  • DAAD-German Academic Exchange Service (contact Associate Dean Harvey Waterman This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., 2-7275, to apply)

  • SSRC International Dissertation Research Fellowship (http://programs.ssrc.org/idrf/)

  • SSRC Dissertation Proposal Development Fellowship (http://programs.ssrc.org/dpdf/)

There are many funding opportunities in addition to the five listed above that will support graduate work overseas. Additionally, there are many funding opportunities that are not specifically for overseas work which may also be a valuable funding resource to support your work. To identity the many funding opportunities best suited for your research interests and funding needs, please visit the Chaser Funder Database (http://chaser.rutgers.edu/database/). Graduate School-New Brunswick students who would like assistance identifying funding opportunities or with their funding applications can request an appointment with a Fellowship Advisor in the Resource Center for Graduate Student External Support by visiting: http://chaser.rutgers.edu/info.html.
