Grad Fellowship in Hmong Studies Launched
The Program in Asian American Studies and the Institute for Advanced Study at the University of Minnesota announce a new graduate fellowship in any field of Hmong Studies, generously funded by a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation.
Students from the professional schools, as well as the Graduate School, are invited to apply. Applicants should provide copies of transcripts, a 500 word statement about their research interests, a letter of recommendation from the advisor and a letter of endorsement from the director of graduate studies.
Applications must be submitted to Ann Waltner in the Institute for Advanced Study (131 Nolte Center) by 4:30 p.m. on April 1.
Students currently enrolled at the University of Minnesota are eligible, as are students admitted for the 2009-10 academic year. (For newly admitted students, departments may substitute letters of recommendation for the letter from the advisor.)
Details of the package may vary depending on the program the student is enrolled in, but will generally cover tuition, a competitive stipend, and health benefits. Fellows are expected to participate in the Asian American Studies Program's Asian American/Diaspora Studies proseminar during the course of their fellowship.
