The mission of the Palestinian American Research Center (PARC) is to improve the quality and quantity of scholarship on Palestine, and to promote the dissemination of research in Palestinian studies. PARC also works to develop cooperation between U.S. and Palestinian scholars and their institutions. Since 1998, PARC has awarded nearly 200 fellowships to U.S., Palestinian and other international doctoral and postdoctoral scholars in diverse fields ranging from medicine to anthropology. PARC cosponsors conferences and seminars in Palestine and the United States, presents a panel at the Middle East Studies Association annual meeting each year, and offers annual Faculty Development Seminars to Palestine. Our office in Ramallah provides researchers with a home base, institutional affiliation, orientation assistance, and introductions to Palestinian scholars, institutions, archives and other sources. We share a research library of well over 6,000 volumes with the Institute for Palestine Studies. The collection focuses on the social history of Palestine and the preservation of Palestinian intellectual and cultural production. Researchers have access to wireless Internet, a quiet workspace, and a conference room accommodating over 40 people. For the 2013-2014 grant cycle, one or two NEH postdoctoral fellowships will be awarded for a period ranging from a minimum of four to a maximum of eight consecutive months of humanities or humanities-oriented research. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or foreign nationals who have lived in the U.S. for the three years preceding the application deadline. Further information about PARC and its NEH fellowship program, including an application, can be found on PARC’s website or by contacting our office in Washington, D.C. Please note that applications must be postmarked no later than January 4, 2013.
