The Carnegie Corporation of New York was created by Andrew Carnegie in 1911 to promote “the advancement and diffusion of knowledge and understanding.” As a grant making foundation, the Corporation seeks to carry out Carnegie's vision of philanthropy, which he said should aim “to do real and permanent good in this world.” The focal areas of the Corporation’s work have evolved over time, adapting to changing circumstances. Current program directions have been designed to correspond with the Corporation's historic mission and legacy. Currently, the Corporation makes grants in the areas of education, international peace and security, international development and in strengthening U.S. democracy.
National Council for Eurasian and East European Research (NCEEER)
Founded in 1978, National Council for Eurasian and East European Research is a not-for-profit academic body whose purpose is to encourage and sustain high-quality research on Eastern Europe and the NIS in the social sciences and the humanities. Over the past twenty years, NCEEER has awarded grants and research contracts to thousands of U.S. scholars and institutions working at the forefront of academic research on the region. NCEEER’s outstanding network of scholars and institutions within the academic and social science community will enhance opportunities for Russian scholars and researchers to identify and engage the “best and the brightest” among American colleagues within their disciplines.
Founded in 1974, American Councils for International Education: ACTR/ACCELS is a private, not-for-profit professional association and exchange organization dedicated to academic cooperation with the NIS in the areas of research, faculty training, language study, and curriculum and materials development. American Councils programs offer U.S. and foreign students and faculty opportunities for serious research and study in the former Soviet Union.
The Caucasus Research Resource Centers program (CRRC) is a network of resource and training centers established in the capital cities of Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia with the goal of strengthening social science research and public policy analysis in the South Caucasus.
A partnership between the Carnegie Corporation of New York and the Eurasia Partnership Foundation (EPF), the program's outcomes are to increase the accessibility of high-quality research resources, to strengthen capacity and, to increase the dialogue and collaboration between social science researchers and policy practitioners.
Since the opening of the Centers in 2003, CRRC has become a nexus of activity for the South Caucasus social science community by providing open access to fundamental literature, data, and professional training for social science researchers. The centers will make it easier for researchers to pursue original work, to base their research on actual transition data, and to participate in the growing domestic policy research community.
Direct and indirect CRRC beneficiaries include social science researchers, faculty members from academic institutions, policy practitioners and other professionals from non-governmental, private, and public sectors.
