The following message comes to CEERES from our friends at UChicago Graduate Student Affairs:
On Thursday, September 30, a Program Officer for the Institute for International Education will lead a discussion of the National Security Education Program’s David Boren Fellowships (for graduate students) & Scholarships (for college students), as well as the Language Flagship Fellowships. Application deadlines are in January or February, depending on the program, so there’s plenty of time for students to put together an application at this point. Graduate Student Affairs is happy to schedule one-on-one advising appointments with interested students who may not be able to attend the workshop, or who have more specific questions about their proposed projects. These are wonderful opportunities for “gap-year” funding for college and Masters students, but can also be used to support dissertation or pre-dissertation fieldwork/research abroad for doctoral students. It’s open to a wide range of programs of study (including STEM fields), and recent winners at UChicago have come from CIR, SSA, among other programs. More information is available in a PDF the agency has prepared: http://www.borenawards.org/document/download/2011_12_information_sheet_43.pdf.
