    Carnegie/Harriman Research Grants
    for Ph.D. Students in the Social Sciences

    Thanks to generous support from the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Harriman Institute of Columbia University announces a competition for grants of up to $16,000 for Ph.D. candidates in the social sciences who are conducting research on Russia. These grants are designed to improve research and training of Ph.D. students whose dissertations include a focus on Russia. Research grants may support training, data collection, dissertation research, or projects unrelated to the dissertation. Projects that involve some form of collaboration with scholars based in Russia will receive special attention, although this is not a condition of receiving the grant.
    Candidates should submit a 10-page research proposal, a curriculum vitae, and a one-page budget outlining their research project to Ryan Kreider at
    Two letters of recommendation (including one from the student’s dissertation adviser) should be sent under separate cover to the same address.

    The deadline for applications is January 5, 2020, and grantees will be notified by January 15.
    For grantees outside of Columbia University, these grants will be subject to taxation. In addition to other application materials, foreign grantees who are not Columbia University students and who are in the United States on an F-1 visa may be asked to provide a Form I-20 and a letter of determination from the International Student Office of their institution confirming whether there are Optional Practical Training (OPT) or Curricular Practical Training (CPT) designation requirements related to accepting the grant funds.
    Funds should be expended by September 30, 2020. There may be opportunities for extension, but extensions cannot be guaranteed.
    Grantees should prepare a 5-page report detailing how the funds were spent. This report will be due by November 1, 2020.
