The Inter-University Program for Latino Research is now accepting applications for the IUPLR/Mellon Fellowship Program (academic year 2017-18). 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 2018. The fellowship includes a $25,000 stipend and travel support to attend IUPLR conferences and a required two-week summer institute in Chicago. With support from the Andrew G. Mellon Foundation, IUPLR will select fellows through five designated research centers:
The Center for Mexican American Studies, Department of Mexican American and Latina/o Studies, The Chicano Studies Research Center at UCLA, The Dominican Studies Institute at CUNY, The Center for Puerto Rican Studies at CUNY, The Latin American and Latino Studies Program at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
