This fellowship is a two-year appointment beginning September 1, 2020, and ending June 30, 2022. The annual stipend is $50,000. In addition, funding is available for research, travel, and related expenses. Fringe benefits will be available during the two-year appointment period.

Fellows are required to be in residence at the Crown Center during the tenure of the fellowship. During their residence, fellows write a Middle East Brief each year and participate in all Crown Center events, including: seminars, workshops, meetings, and retreats.
