For a list of current fellowship opportunities and deadlines, please visit the SSRC website. These programs often target the spaces between disciplines, where new perspectives emerge and struggle for acceptance, thus ensuring the production of knowledge and expertise on key topics, regions, and social challenges. They promote the diversification of knowledge production, strengthening research by ensuring that it remains open to (and challenged by) a range of perspectives, backgrounds, and nationalities. The SSRC has funded the work of more than 10,000 researchers and junior scholars from around the world, often at pivotal moments in their careers. Its fellowships and grant programs have engaged a wide and evolving range of themes, from African youth and globalization to public spheres in the Middle East and North Africa; from human sexuality to memory and repression in Latin America; from the social role of information technologies to the impacts and causes of international migration.
