Lizzy Meggyesy | Apr 7, 2023

Every week, Perspectives Daily showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship that has been posted to our free community calendar. This week we are featuring MESA Global Academy Fellowships for 2023–24.


The MESA Global Academy offers competitive fellowships to Middle East Studies scholars in the humanities and social sciences from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) who are currently displaced in North America.

Eligibility criteria for the fellowships include:

  1. holding a PhD or equivalent in a field in the social sciences or humanities (graduate students will not be considered)
  2. the primary institutional affiliation was in the MENA region prior to displacement
  3. a publication record indicating scholarly productivity (in English, French, a native MENA language, or principal research language of the field).


The Global Academy awards $5,000 scholarships and facilitates programming for its fellows, including speaking engagements at partner universities across the United States, publication opportunities, mentoring, and professional development workshops. 

End: May 1, 2023
