The UCLA International Institute announces a series of Fieldwork Fellowships open to UCLA doctoral students in good standing whose research focuses on one or more aspects of international or regional studies.
The awards are targeted for research abroad and particularly for cases where other support is not available.
The fieldwork may be conducted either after the advancement to candidacy for the Ph.D. degree (i.e. long-term dissertation research), or before advancement to candidacy as a short-term pilot study. Candidates must, nonetheless, have completed all coursework for the Ph.D. degree. Applicants of all nationalities are eligible to apply; there are no citizenship restrictions.
Long-term awards of six months to one year each (maximum award: $15,000) and short-term pilot awards of up to three months each (maximum award: $5,000) are available. Award amounts will vary, according to the project and proposed budget, with the precise award amounts to be determined by the Fellowship Selection Committee. Students who receive awards from other sources that duplicate support of the Institute’s Fieldwork Fellowship program will not be considered.
Applicants’ dissertation or pilot study topics must have theoretical or comparative significance and normally will include one or more regional foci: Africa, Latin America, the Near East, Europe and Eurasia, and Asia. Students in the social sciences, humanities, and professional schools are eligible to apply. The Fellowship Committee will give preference to contemporary, theoretical, or globalization topics consistent with the Institute’s missions.
