Nomination Deadline: April 30, 2011
Ping Doctoral Research Fellowships provide support for doctoral research focused on U.S. undergraduate study abroad. Funded through a small endowment, the Doctoral Research Fellowships are named after Dr. Charles Ping, a gifted teacher and scholar, a tireless advocate for the internationalization of U.S. higher education, President Emeritus of Ohio University, and a long-time former Chairman of the CIEE Board of Directors.
CIEE invites Directors of Graduate Studies (DGS) – or if a Department has no DGS, a Chair – to nominate a qualified doctoral candidate for a Ping Doctoral Research Fellowship. CIEE intends that these awards will replace some or all of a Fellow’s eight- or nine-month remuneration as a Graduate or Teaching Assistant, thereby allowing him or her to make more rapid progress toward successful completion of the doctoral degree.
