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 Senior Fellows are given direct funding for their research, access to in-country resources, and provided with logistical support and contacts while in-country.
These fellowships are open to scholars who already hold a PhD degree 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.

Two Categories of Senior Fellowships
- Long-Term Research Fellowships: These fellowships are available for 6 to 11 months of research (for US and Cambodian recipients) or up to 9 months of research (for French recipients).
- Short-Term Research Fellowships: These fellowships are available for up to 4 months of research (for US and Cambodian recipients).
CKS Fellow Benefits
All CKS Fellows are provided direct funding for their research, access to CKS resources, as well as in-country logistical support and contacts. The CKS library also provides free access to JSTOR for its Fellows.
The Selection Committee will assess each application on the basis of the candidate’s submitted project description, their academic and/or professional record, and the quality of their references. Because members of the Selection Committee represent different academic disciplines, applicants must explain the nature and significance of their projects in terms understandable to a non-specialist audience.
