Young, mid-career, and senior scholars from Kazakhstan who would like to conduct research in Washington, DC and participate in the CAP activities are invited to submit applications for the Bolashak Visiting Fellowship Program.
Selected fellows may be in residence at GW for a period from one month to one year. Some may require up to six months of English language training before the fellowship. During their stay, Bolashak Visiting Fellows are closely mentored and guided by CAP members. They are given office space, computer access, and library privileges. They are expected to participate actively in the intellectual life at IERES, which may include talks, conferences, informal discussions, and other activities.
GWU offers two tracks for prospective Bolashak Fellows:
- Individual Fellows: Scholars who want to be in residence at GWU for a period of one month to one year for work on a specific research project
- Non-degree training programs: Scholars, professors, teachers or experts who would like to participate in a 10-week non-degree training program, offered by the CAP, on International Affairs and Public Policy or Education Management. Each Program is offered once a year, usually during the fall.
