The Center for Khmer Studies (CKS) provides in-country research fellowships for US, Cambodian, and French scholars (or EU citizens holding a degree from a French university) and doctoral students on a yearly basis.
CKS Dissertation Research Fellows are given direct funding for their research and access to in-country resources, and are provided with logistical support and contacts while in-country. These fellowships are available for a maximum of 11 months of research.
These fellowships are open to PhD candidates in all disciplines in the social sciences and the humanities who seek to pursue further research focusing on Cambodia alone or on Cambodia within a regional context.
Scholars can conduct research in other countries in mainland Southeast Asia (including Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Myanmar, and southern China) provided that some portion of their research is undertaken in Cambodia.
