These awards are made possible through CAORC (Council of American Overseas Research Centers) and funded by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the United States Department of State. Proposed topics may be in any sub-discipline within the natural and social sciences or humanities, and may focus on antiquity, the medieval period, or the modern era.

Research topics are broadly interpreted and should contribute to scholarship in Near Eastern studies. The holders of the fellowships are expected to participate in the scholarly and cultural activity of the ACOR community while in residence.
