The Title VIII Research Scholar Program was initiated by American Councils in 1986 to meet the growing demand among U.S. graduate students, Ph.D. candidates, faculty, and scholars at different professional levels for research opportunities at key academic centers in Eurasia and Eastern Europe. The competition for funding is open and merit-based. Scholars must conduct research for at least three consecutive months in the field. The maximum duration of the grant is eight consecutive months. Research scholar applicants may only apply for research in a total of two countries, maximum.

The Title VIII Combined Research and Language Training Program (CRLT) serves graduate students and scholars who, in addition to support for research, require supplemental language instruction. The competition for funding is open and merit-based. Applicants must conduct research and language study for at least three consecutive months in the field. The maximum duration of the grant is eight consecutive months. Participants must have attained at least an intermediate level of language proficiency to apply. The synergistic nature of the research and language training aspects of the Combined Research and Language Training Program promises both more productive research and efficient language acquisition. Combined Research and Language Training applicants may only apply for research in a total of two countries, maximum.
