The Graduate School, on behalf of the Provost's Interdisciplinary Team, is pleased to announce that it will award up to 15 year-long Interdisciplinary Doctoral Fellowships for 2010-11 to outstanding Graduate School students with interdisciplinary dissertation topics who would benefit from interaction with faculty at one of several designated University interdisciplinary research centers or institutes. The fellowship provides a unique study opportunity for our very best students with research and scholarly interests that complement those of the host center or institute and its faculty. Prospective fellows are asked to designate the host center or institute they believe is the best match with their dissertation topic, contingent upon a faculty member's willingness to work with the student during the fellowship year. Recent University commitments to increase the pool of Graduate School fellowships, and matching funds provided by several University-wide host centers and institutes, make it possible to support this number of fellows next year.

The Educational Psychology program may nominate up to 3 students for this award. All application materials must be submitted to Kathy Walter, 250B EdSciB, by Monday, February 8. Details about the application are available at
