The Caucasus Regional Policy Symposium. Deadline: December 1, 2003. IREX, in collaboration with the Woodrow Wilson Center for International Scholars, will be administering a symposium to bring together senior and junior U.S. scholars to discuss a variety of political, economic, historical, and cultural topics related to the Caucasus and its relationships with neighboring Russia, Turkey, and Iran. Junior scholars will be chosen based on a national competition. Applications must demonstrate a commitment to continued study, research, and work with the countries of the Caucasus region. The symposium is scheduled for Spring 2004 in the Washington, D.C. area.

Short-Term Travel Grants. Deadline: February 1, 2004. Grants of up to $3,000 for up to two months of independent or collaborative research in Europe and Eurasia for postdoctoral scholars and professionals with terminal degrees.
