The International Research & Exchanges Board (IREX) offers grants to master’s students, predoctoral students, professionals, and postdoctoral scholars through its Individual Advanced Research Opportunities (IARO) program. The grants support in-depth field research in policy-relevant subject areas related to Southeast Europe and Eurasia or equivalent projects. Recipients will receive roundtrip plane tickets from the U.S. to the host country for the period of the award, a monthly allowance for housing and living expenses, travel visas, and emergency evacuation insurance.
