CASI grant requirements for AUCA faculty and students
CASI provides modest fellowships to AUCA faculty (dependent on CASI’s own funding levels). These fellowships will be awarded on a competitive basis and will require a series of commitments:
In order to ensure compliance, CASI will disburse fellowship funding in installments, with further disbursements being contingent on fulfilling the requirements the Institute has set. It should also go without saying, that all other things being equal, CASI will favor those projects whose faculty are active participants in CASI’s various activities.
AUCA senior students
Beyond funding AUCA faculty, CASI will also provide small fellowships for students completing their senior theses, so long as they relate to Central Asia. In order to apply for a CASI fellowship, senior students will need a short recommendation letter from their thesis supervisor. While CASI will provide funding, students’ monitoring once fellowships have been awarded will be carried out by their respective supervisors. Senior students will also be required to present the outcome of their research at a CASI seminar.
For both faculty and senior students
All presentations and publications based on research carried out with the support of a CASI grant should clearly acknowledge it, in oral or in written form. Indications on what this acknowledgement should read like will be provided later.
