US Embassy Policy Specialist Program (EPS)

Overview

The U.S. Embassy Policy Specialist program (EPS) gives U.S. scholars the opportunity to serve as researchers-in-residence at U.S. Embassies, U.S. Consulates, and USAID Missions in Eurasia.
IREX works with U.S. government representatives in-country to recruit scholars that meet the specific needs of the host Embassy or Mission, with the goal of improving U.S. government access to policy-relevant knowledge and expertise in the region.

Project Activities

Each EPS fellowship lasts one to two months and is structured in consultation with the host Embassy or Mission. As part of the EPS fellowship, participants are provided with visa assistance, international roundtrip transportation, housing in the country of service, a monthly allowance for living expenses, and emergency evacuation insurance. EPS fellows work closely with U.S. government staff and receive support from field offices in the region.
