Provost’s Announcement of IU/Mellon Dissertation Fellowships and Information Sessions

Dear Colleagues:

 

As we begin the new academic year, I’m delighted to draw your attention to a generous award of $750,000 from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to Indiana University that will allow us to support international and area studies programs on the Bloomington campus. This award will support the efforts of the newly approved School of Global and International Studies.

 

The award supports a three-year program “Innovating International Research, Teaching, and Collaboration at Indiana University.” The project’s primary goal is to advance new directions in international and area studies that include faculty in the humanities and collaborations with the social sciences and professional schools throughout the campus.

 

In each of the project’s three years, there will be four funding programs. Faculty and students may apply for funds that will support short-term faculty fellowships, graduate dissertation fellowships, curriculum development fellowships, and innovative workshops.

 

IU Bloomington’s international and area studies programs represent a long and rich tradition of international engagement, and I am honored to be the principal investigator for this project. The Office of the Vice Provost for Research, under the direction of Associate Vice Provost Ruth Stone, will administer the program.

 

The first deadline for applications is September 15, and a series of information sessions are scheduled to share details about the programs as follows:
