Summer Research Fellowship Opportunity

In the U.S., Hispanics represent the largest, and one of the fastest growing minority population subgroups. To determine what programs and policies should be doing differently, if anything, to better serve Hispanic children and families, Child Trends and Abt Associates are pleased to announce the creation of the National Research Center on Hispanic Children & Families ("Center'). The Center is comprised of a strong team of national experts on Hispanic issues, and is a hub of research to improve the lives of Hispanics across three priority areas--(1) poverty reduction and self-sufficiency, (2) healthy marriage and responsible fatherhood, and (3) early care and education. The Center was established by a 2013 cooperative agreement from the Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation within the Administration for Children and Families to Child Trends in partnership with Abt Associates and university partners - University of Maryland-College Park, University of North Carolina - Greensboro, and New York University.

The newly launched Center also is pleased to announce a new Summer Research Fellowship program for 2014. In its inaugural year, the goal of the Summer Research Fellowship Program is to attract, develop, and expand the pool of emerging scholars focused on studying issues concerning low-income and vulnerable Hispanic children and families. This 12-week program is open to those currently enrolled in an advanced graduate program (Master's, Ph.D., or ABD - "all but dissertation") and will provide graduate students with the opportunity to carry out policy-research in an applied setting, and in ways that can impact both policy and programs serving Hispanic children and families. We currently are accepting applications for summer 2014 research fellowships. Click here for more information on how to apply. Due to the demand, be sure to submit your application by March 7th, 2014.

Fellowship opportunity

The Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) is now accepting applications for the 2011 Mellon Fellowships for Dissertation Research in Original Sources.

The purposes of this fellowship program are to:

* help junior scholars in the humanities and related social-science fields gain skill and creativity in developing knowledge from original sources;
* enable dissertation writers to do research wherever relevant sources may be, rather than just where financial support is available;
* encourage more extensive and innovative uses of original sources in libraries, archives, museums, historical societies, and related repositories in the U.S. and abroad; and
* provide insight from the viewpoint of doctoral candidates into how scholarly resources can be developed for access most helpfully in the future.

The program will be offering about fifteen competitively awarded fellowships for 2011. Each provides a stipend of $2,000 per month for 9-12 months. Each fellow will receive an additional $1,000 upon participating in a symposium on research in original sources and submitting an acceptable report to CLIR on the research experience. Thus the maximum award will be $25,000.

Fellowship stipends will support research beginning between June 1 and September 1, 2011, and ending within 12 months of commencing. Fellowships will not be renewed or extended. Fellows are expected to devote full time to their dissertation research without holding teaching or research assistantships or undertaking other paid work. Applicants may apply simultaneously for other fellowships, including Mellon awards, but fellows may not hold other fellowships simultaneously with CLIR's. Fellows may use stipends to meet living expenses, travel costs, and other expenses that enable dissertation research to be carried out, but not to defray tuition.

Applicants do not have to be U.S. citizens, but must be enrolled in a doctoral program in a graduate school in the United States.

For further information on eligibility, requirements, and deadlines, please visit CLIR's website at http://www.clir.org/fellowships/mellon/mellon.html.

DOCTORAL DISSERTATION FELLOWSHIP: Jan. 6 deadline

The award provides support so that recipients can devote full-time effort to research and writing of the dissertation. The award includes a stipend of $21,000, academic year tuition for up to 14 thesis credits, and subsidized health insurance through the graduate assistant plan.

This competition requires nomination by the graduate program. Programs are required to decide how many incoming students they will nominate for new student fellowships and how many nominations they will reserve for doctoral dissertation fellowships. The Ed Psych Graduate Advisory Committee will decide how those nominations will be divided at their January meeting

Eligible students must have (1) passed written and oral prelim exams by March 10, 2006; (2) an approved degree program on file in the Graduate School; (3) all program coursework completed by the end of spring semester 2006; (4) no incompletes in official program coursework on transcript by March 10, 2006; and (5) plan to graduate by the end of spring 2007 (or no later than fall 2007).

Please note that the award is intended for students who, typically, will be entering their fifth or sixth year of graduate study, having entered the Graduate School in fall 2001 or later with a bachelor’s degree (or 2003 or later with a master’s degree). Students who entered before this date are eligible, but the program will be required to provide an explanation of individual circumstances that led to a lengthier program of study.

If you will meet the above requirements and think you may submit a proposal for the award, please notify Kathleen Walter (kwalter@umn.edu; 206 Burton Hall) by Friday, January 6. The Graduate Advisory Committee will review the pool of applicants and determine how many nominations will be held for the doctoral dissertation fellowship.

LUCE SCHOLARS PROGRAM OF PROFESSIONAL APPENTICESHIPS IN ASIA

Background: The University of Minnesota is one of sixty-five colleges and universities invited to participate in the Luce Scholars Program. Fifteen young Americans of outstanding promise and high leadership ability are sent each year to Asia for professional apprenticeships under the guidance of leading Asians. Internships and job placements are arranged for each Scholar on the basis of individual career interests, experience, training, and general background. (No academic credit is involved.) The year-long program begins in August.

Eligibility: Applicants must be U.S. citizens no more than twenty-nine years of age on September 1 of the year they would enter the program. They must have earned at least a Bachelors degree or its equivalent prior to their participation in the program. They may be currently-enrolled students in any college, recent graduates, or junior faculty. Applicants who have a major in Asian studies, or who have already had significant exposure to Asia will be considered ineligible. Applicants who can reasonably be expected to gain such exposure during the course of their career will also be ineligible.

Application: The Luce Scholars application consists of the following: 1) Application form; 2) Personal statement no more than 1,000 words outlining (a) long-range career interests, how they developed, and plans for pursuing them in the future, and (b) reasons for applying to the Luce Scholars Program; 3) Academic transcripts; 4) Two recent passport photographs; 5) Four letters of recommendation; 6) Address Information Card

Stipend and Allowances: Luce Scholars receive a significant basic stipend and, if necessary, separate cost-of-living or housing allowances. Economy class air transportation and medical insurance are also provided.

Language: Since the program is geared to the non-specialist, knowledge of an Asian language is not a criterion for selection. It is assumed that all Scholars will study the appropriate language prior to their departure. Special funds may be made available for this purpose.

Selection Criteria: Applicants should have a strong, mature, and clearly defined career interest in a specific field (other than Asian studies). Applicants should have a record of sound academic achievement, strong motivation and potential for accomplishment within their chosen career interest, and should give evidence of an outstanding capacity for leadership.

Application Procedure: Campus interviews are conducted during the month of November. The University of Minnesota may submit three nominations. Further information and application materials may be obtained from:

Graduate School Fellowship Office
314 Johnston Hall
University of Minnesota
Minneapolis, MN 55455 (telephone: [612] 625-7579)
