The Latino Studies Program is accepting applications for a Dissertation Year Fellowship for 2012-13. The fellowship includes a stipend of $18,000 and student health insurance coverage. It does not include a fee remission. The award will enable a doctoral candidate to engage in focused work leading to the completion of a Ph.D. dissertation. During the fellowship year, the student is expected to devote full time to dissertation work and to participate in the Latino Studies Program’s scholarly activities.
Application procedure: To be eligible, applicants must be taking their doctoral degree within the College of Arts & Sciences and must be formally advanced to candidacy by July 31, 2012. Preference will be given to projects which enrich knowledge about Latino populations residing in the United States; projects which involve transnational populations or frameworks are also acceptable.
Application materials include: curriculum vitae; transcripts; dissertation prospectus; two letters of recommendation (one of which must be from the dissertation advisor). Letters of recommendation must be sent directly from the recommender or from the student’s placement coordinator. Application forms are available at www.indiana.edu/~latino.
DEADLINE: Friday, February 24, 2012
Materials may be submitted as email attachments or in hard copy to:
