Summer Research Laboratory 2018
Call for Applications
The Summer Research Laboratory (SRL) on Russia, Eastern Europe, and Eurasia is open to all scholars with research interests in the Russian, East European and Eurasian region for eight weeks during the summer months from June 11 until August 3. The SRL provides scholars access to the resources of the world renowned Slavic, East European, and Eurasian collection within a flexible time frame where scholars have the opportunity to receive one-on-one research assistance from the librarians of the Slavic Reference Service (SRS).
The deadline for grant funding is March 15 and is fast approaching! REEEC will continue to receive applications for the Summer Research Lab after the grant deadline, but housing and travel funds will not be guaranteed.
For more information and to apply, please see the REEEC SRL website.
For graduate students, the SRL provides an opportunity to conduct research prior to going abroad and extra experience to refine research skills and strategies. Students will also have the opportunity of seeking guidance from specialized librarians in navigating resources pertaining to and originating from Russia, Eastern Europe, and Eurasia.
The SRL is an extensive service that provides access to a wide range of materials that center on and come from: Russia, the Former Soviet Union, Czech and Slovak Republics, Former Yugoslavia, Poland, Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan. The International & Area Studies Library, where the Slavic, East European, and Eurasian reference collection is housed, contains work stations for readers, research technologies, a collection of authoritative reference works, and provides unlimited access to one of the largest collections for Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies in North America.
Thanks to support from the U.S. State Department's Title VIII Program for the Study of Eastern Europe and the Independent States of the Former Soviet Union, the SRL is able to offer financial aid (in the form of housing grants, travel grants, and stipends) to scholars pursuing policy-relevant research.
Applicants to the Summer Language Workshop are also encouraged to consider a short-term research visit to the Summer Research Laboratory on Russia, Eastern Europe, and Eurasia upon the conclusion of their chosen language course.
