The call for 2009 GRPPs (GRADUATE RESEARCH PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM fellowships) in Comparative Race and Ethnic Studies is out!
If you'd like a full description of the fellowship, and more information on how to apply, visit this website.
The Graduate Research Partnership Program (GRPP) encourages graduate students enrolled in graduate programs housed within the College of Liberal Arts to partner with a CLA faculty project adviser on projects of shared interest. This particular GRPP fellowship is for students who would like to partner with core and affiliated faculty members of the Chicano Studies Department, American Indian Studies Department, African American and African Studies Department, and the Asian American Studies Program. The program provides GRPP Fellows with a summer research stipend of $4,000 for summer 2009.
This GRPP may be used for pre-dissertation or dissertation research.
TERMS OF AWARD:
Awards will be in the form of a fellowship of $4,000. We may be able to
award additional funds to cover the cost of materials, travel, and expenses
associated with the project up to $500. There will be a total of four
awards available in 2009.
The competition is open to graduate students in CLA. Students are ineligible if they have incompletes in official program coursework from a prior term on their transcript. As a condition of the award, GRPP Fellows may not hold
summer appointments in excess of .25 FTE, except to teach a May term course.
Students receiving other University of Minnesota fellowships during the period are ineligible for the GRPP Fellowship. Students may hold external fellowships if the request is approved by their departments¹ GRPP selection
committee. Students may not register for courses while they hold a GRPP Fellowship.
Priority will be given to students whose work emphasizes comparative race and ethnic studies but those focusing on a single group will also be considered. Priority will be given to candidates who have not previously had a GRPP.
