Call for Applicants
The Inter-University Program for Latino Research is now accepting applications for the IUPLR/Mellon Fellowship Program (academic year 2016-17). The program supports ABD doctoral students in the humanities who are writing dissertations in Latina/o studies. Doctoral students in the social sciences whose research uses humanities methods may also be considered. The fellowship facilitates completion of the dissertation and provides professional development, job market support, and mentoring for students who will graduate in Spring 2017.
With support from the Andrew G. Mellon Foundation, IUPLR will select fellows through five designated research centers:
. The Center for Mexican American Studies and the Department of Mexican American and Latina/o Studies at the University of Texas at Austin
. The Chicano Studies Research Center at UCLA
. The CUNY Dominican Studies Institute, The City College of New York
. Centro de Estudios Puertorriqueños at Hunter College, CUNY
. The Latin American and Latino Studies Program at the University of Illinois at Chicago
The fellowship includes a $25,000 stipend and travel support to attend IUPLR conferences and a required two-week summer institute in Chicago. Matriculation fees and health insurance will be paid by the home institution, provided that the fellow is in residence.
